Christian Benteke almost opened the scoring on 21 minutes but his free header came back off the base of a post.
The forward headed Palace in front 11 minutes into the second half, rising highest to convert Tyrick Mitchell’s cross.
The lead was short-lived as Wilson drew Newcastle level with his spectacular finish on 65 minutes.
Benteke had a chance to put Palace back in front but rolled his effort wide.
The Belgian also saw a late effort from a corner overturned after a foul by Marc Guehi in the build-up was picked up in a VAR review.
Their fourth consecutive draw drops Palace to 15th on nine points, while Newcastle remain 19th, three points from safety.
