Wildcat Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Wildcat Campground is actually two rough and rustic areas located in the 12,600acre Lake Burton Wildlife Management Area, contiguous to the Tray Mountain Wilderness. A single-lane road with turnouts traces Wildcat Creek and all but eliminates RVs from entering the area.

The Forest Service banished roadside camping along Wildcat Creek and constructed these campgrounds to concentrate the impact of human visitors in two areas. The Lake Burton Wildlife Management Area is lightly used except during hunting season. The two campgrounds are spartan and will put you in the mood for outdoor recreation. Both areas have low-flow flush toilets and recycling bins. You must get your water from the creek. Be sure to treat or boil it before consuming."

Stayed here after Tate Branch and the other campgrounds along the Tallulah River were full. Nice quiet campground. This one was great as the very friendly host stays at Wildcat #1 (We stayed at #1) and provides support for Wildcat #1 and #2. (.ie. enforces quiet hours) Water is not provided, so you have to get it from the stream or bring your own. Vault toilets. Host sold firewood for a nominal fee. If you continue on the road, there are many primitive campsites all the way up to the barricade just before Addis Gap (1.5 miles to the Appalachian Trail). Saw a bear along this road to the trail.
