Isaac Wildrick (March 3, 1803 in Frelinghuysen Township, New Jersey – March 22, 1892 in Blairstown, New Jersey) was an American Democratic Party politician, who represented New Jersey's 3rd congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 1849 to 1853.

Wildrick was born in Marksboro (in Frelinghuysen Township, New Jersey) on March 3, 1803. He attended the common schools, and engaged in agricultural pursuits near Blairstown Township, New Jersey. He was constable from 1827 to 1832, coroner from 1829–1831, Justice of the Peace from 1834–1839, judge in 1839, sheriff from 1839–1841 and director of the county poorhouse from 1842-1848. He was a member of the Board of Chosen Freeholders from 1845-1848.

Wildrick was elected as a Democrat to the Thirty-first and Thirty-second Congresses, serving in office from March 4, 1849, to March 3, 1853, but was not a candidate for renomination in 1852.

After leaving Congress, he resumed agricultural pursuits. He was again a freeholder from 1856–1859, and was a member of the New Jersey General Assembly from 1882 to 1885. He died in Blairstown on March 22, 1892, and was interred in the Presbyterian Cemetery in Marksboro.
