Wildcat Mountain State Park, Wisconsin

Wildcat Mountain State Park is located on a ridge rising steeply above the Kickapoo River, east of La Crosse, Wisconsin. It is a proposed Dark Sky Reserve and has been known for years for fantastic night sky viewing. Camping is allowed. A stargazer told us, “It’s reported to be the darkest sky between Minneapolis and Chicago.”
