The grounds at Wildcat Creek are rich in natural attractions, including luscious, tree-lined walkways that guests love to peruse as they turn off their cellphones and reconnect with nature.

In a world where it’s difficult to catch one’s breath, Wildcat Creek Campgrounds give vacationers permission to slow down and unwind among the rich, colorful landscapes that encompass Kentucky Lake.

Accommodations

While primarily a campground, Wildcat Creek does have a three-bedroom, two-bathroom guest lodge on site. The lodge is fully furnished and is a short walk to the beach or the campsites. It includes plenty of space for families and friends to find a few treasured moments together around one of the fireplaces found in the living room and den.

The lodge has a fully equipped kitchen, which includes a dishwasher. There is also a washer and dryer, two spacious decks, a hot tub, a large yard, plenty of parking and a beautiful pond, which features a floating dock. Guests will certainly enjoy watching cable television on one of the large, flat screens in the house.

While a favorite place for vacation seekers wishing to relax during the day, more adventurous sorts are also attracted to these accommodations. In fact, hunters and fishermen from around the country have found the lodge to be an ideal location to unwind after a long day of roughing it outdoors.

The lodge comfortably sleeps 12 people.

Campground

The grounds include 56 large, shaded campsites with water and electric hookups. Grills, fire rings and picnic tables are set up at each site. A bathhouse and changing area is located nearby. Firewood and ice is available on site. Seasonal campers have access to a pump out service, as well.

Wildcat Creek provides a private and safe atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. A play area offers hours of entertainment for children. There is also a sandy, private beach where guests can indulge in a few games of beach volleyball or host a picnic in one of the shaded areas.
