Wildwood is a private and unique recreational development that is owned, operated and managed by the lot owners through the Wildwood Lot Owners Association (WLOA).
Wildwood is not a time share facility—you are the deeded owner of your lot in a year-round community. With 1200 acres and 10 lakes, Wildwood is the ideal place for RV owners, or for families who want to just pitch a tent or build a getaway cabin.
Originally developed in 1973 by several businessmen from St. Louis as Lost Canyon Lakes, it was a recreational property for the family enjoyment of outdoor living. In 1982, Wildwood Lot Owners Association incorporated, and since August, 1987 the lot owners (WLOA) have totally owned, managed and controlled what is now called Wildwood.
We are governed by a Board of Directors consisting of seven elected members, each serving a three year term. These Directors are lot owners who are sworn to manage Wildwood in accordance with its covenants, by-laws, and rules & regulations.
In addition to the Board, we have twenty one Park Council Representatives (also lot owners), who serve one to three year terms. These Park Council Representatives voice the concerns of all lot owners to the Board of Directors for review and action. Park Council meetings are held once each month and are open to all lot owners.
Wildwood has office, maintenance or security personnel on staff year round. We even have a small convenience store stocked with drinks, candy and other items you might have forgotten to bring. You can purchase your fishing and hunting license, buy bait, or just stop by for a free cup of coffee. The Wildwood Store/Office building is even equipped with a laundry room.
We have social activities scheduled from April to December, with a full line of events on holiday weekends. And, there are events for every age group! Activities are posted at the office, on the outdoor bulletin board, on this website, and in our quarterly newsletter, the Whooter.
Do you like to fish? We have 10 lakes stocked and fishing tournaments scheduled on Holiday weekends! Do you like to swim? We have an Olympic-size pool open from Memorial Day to Labor Day! Do you have an ATV, Dirt Bike, UTV or Dune Buggy? Welcome to ATV “heaven.” In addition to the 26 miles of gravel roads that you can cruise around, we have 400 acres of ATV trails!
