Lake Wildwood is a beautiful gated community located in a wooded setting around a private lake.
It is comprised of 2841 member lots and a population of more than 5000. Besides 32 miles of roads and 24-hour security patrol, amenities include a 300 acre lake, 65 acres of parks and greenbelts including 5 developed parks, an 80 slip marina with a launching ramp, a new lakeside community center, a 42’x 75’ swimming pool, tennis courts, an 18-hole golf course with a driving range and a full service Pro Shop, and a Clubhouse with a cocktail lounge, outdoor deck and restaurant. Popular sports include golf, swimming, tennis, fishing, and boating.
Lake Wildwood is an active community with over 40 clubs, including its own television station, Channel 95. Osher Lifelong Learning Institute courses are offered at the new community center, as well as exercise classes, yoga and special events. Local news is published in the weekly newsletter e-Bits and the semi-monthly The Wildwood Independent (TWI) newspaper.
The Lake Wildwood Parks and Recreation Department provides and maintains a full range of recreational activities and park facilities for the community. Tots to seniors can find an array of classes including tennis, cultural arts, sports, fitness, and leisure activities available throughout the year. Our Aquatic Center is open during the months of May-October and features lifeguard courses along with swim lessons, specialty classes, and more. All classes and activities are published in the e-Bits newsletter and in The Wildwood Independent.
Homeowners are a blend of both full-time and part-time residents of all ages…many with plans to make Lake Wildwood their full-time home when they retire.
The natural greenbelts and lake attract a wildlife population of deer, turkeys, migrating geese, squirrels, rabbits, and an occasional eagle. Lake Wildwood is only 5 miles from the historic covered bridge on the South Yuba River at Bridgeport. Visitors enjoy swimming, hiking, and panning for gold. The historic towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City are only minutes away.
