Wild Acres Basic Information 

Wild Acres was established in 1996 and is connected to the Colorado River. Even if your home does not border the river there is an access point for anyone in Wild Acres to enjoy. The neighborhood has access to over 2000 feet of the Colorado River. Wild Acres is located just south of Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park. Both are just a few short drives away. Lake Granby, just south of Wild Acres, offers many lake activities to enjoy. Wild Acres is also far enough away to escape from the crowds of Grand County.

The Colorado River

The Colorado River is 1,450 miles long and starts right in your Wild Acres backyard. The Colorado River flows from Grand Lake and winds right next to Wild Acres. The river offers a calming background to your life while you spend time with your friends and family. All property owners can use the access point to the river through the Preserve while riverfront property owners have private access. On the other side of the river is Heritage Ranch. The Ranch's 810 acres create an open feel on the other side of the flowing waters. Heritage Ranch has been operating as a cattle farm and hay pasture for decades. As with any large undeveloped land, the future is unknown.
