Wenallt Camp, also known as Wenallt Enclosure, is an iron age enclosure near Rhiwbina, Cardiff, in South Wales, although some consider the camp a hillfort. The camp is a scheduled monument.

The camp is a fairly rectangular oval measuring 60 metres (66 yd) north to south by 38 metres (42 yd) protected by a bank and ditch about 12 metres (13 yd) wide and .15 metres (0.16 yd) high. There is an entrance to the south-east, and there are traces of an external stone revetment. Near the middle of the enclosure is a levelled terrace about 7.5 metres (8.2 yd) in diameter which may have been the site of a hut. The site would have given views across the Cardiff area and over the Bristol Channel.

The camp lies in an area of semi-natural ancient woodland called The Wenallt, which is a popular site for visitors.
