Ice Cave Near Amil’s Inn

Claire, Caitlan, Sondra, and Rachel enjoying the Ice Cave!

Even though it is spring and we just saw our first robin in the driveway of Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast, the Ice Cave at Wildcat Mountain State Park, Ontario, Wisconsin still looks like winter.

The Ice Cave is actually an eroded sandstone formation that appears to be a cave when approaching.  However upon closer inspection you will find a shallow depression in the rock with a small spring running over the upper edge.  During the winter, this spring water freezes into a giant icicle.  Our daughter and 4 of her friends made a recent visit and as you can see, there still is much ice to enjoy.  Actually the the iceicle can last into May depending on the spring weather!

The Ice Cave is just off County Highway F, south of State Highway 33.  This is the entrance and parking area to the Ice Cave picnic area and trail.  The Ice Cave is approximately ¾ mile from the picnic area and you will be hiking along the banks of Billings Creek.

Wildcat Mountain State Park can be enjoyed all year long.  It has over 20 miles of hiking trails, 15 miles of horse riding loops with 24 campsites for equestrians nearby, over 25 family campsites, several picnic areas available with shelter, canoeing and kayaking on the Kickapoo River, fishing and limited hunting and trapping as well as snowshoe and cross-country skiing trails.  For more information visit their website: www.dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/wildcat

Now would be a great time to plan your trip to Wildcat Mountain State Park.
