Forbes Park is a gated mountain community comprised of 20+ square miles of high alpine valley and mountains covered in native grasses, shrubs, wildflowers, aspen, fir, spruce and pine trees. The Park is adjacent to National Forest, allowing hunting right on the other side of the fence. The abundant wildlife enjoy year round water supply of the numerous ponds and Wagon Creek. Bears, mountain lions, coyotes, deer, elk, bobcats and wild turkeys call this area home. There are about 3,300 lots in Forbes Park, and only about 200 homes. The area burned in the Spring Fire in June-July of 2018 and over 130 homes were lost. Many people are rebuilding. The Park allows RV camping (permit required) and has a small, rustic Community Center with restrooms, a kitchen and meeting room, WiFi, and RV dump station.
Please call, text or email us if you would like to see homes in Forbes Park. Residents are instructed not to allow unknown vehicles to follow them through the electronic gate.
Forbes Park is covenant controlled and has a Land Owners Association which charges $290 per year per lot. This fee covers road maintenance, office staff salaries, trash removal and free unlimited use of the small, rustic Community Center. After the Spring Fire some homes have been rebuilt, and many lots are being cleared of the burnt trees.
The area is quiet with the serene beauty of Blanca Peak, Mt. Maestas, wildflower meadows, and expansive vistas. Motorcycles and ATVs are not allowed on the roads in Forbes Park due to the blind curves, dust clouds, and potential fatalities resulting from that dangerous combination.
