Charles and Laurlie Whipple leased the Gray Lakes area in Northern Colorado in 1962 for family use, gatherings, and recreation. As lease costs, insurance, and other expenses increased it became necessary to take in members to meet those expenses. So in 1965 Highland Acres Hunting and Fishing Club was started. At that time activities included, but were not limited to dove, duck, and goose hunting.
While Charles traveled for work most of the week Laurlie managed the club and handled blind reservations. When Laurlie passed away in 1979 Charles retired from his job and took on the responsibility of managing the club full time. Eventually their daughter moved back into the area and took over most the work at the club leaving Charles to manage it.
Now the club offers a variety of recreational activities year round. Some of these activities include camping, trap shooting, dog training, hiking, and most recently fishing was added. Our most valued activities within the club are decoy hunting and our Youth Days, where we get to help promote youth hunting and training. All events and activities are available to members and are included in some of the best rates around.
The club is located in Northern Colorado and has easy access to and from I-25. Access to the club is via a private road with a locked gate. With a limited number of memberships and well organized blind reservations a place to hunt is guaranteed.
A heated lodge is available during the hunting season and a dressing station is available if needed. A trap shoot range with throwers furnished is also available for use. There are ten (10) 4x8 blinds available with decoys provided at four (4) of the available blinds. All blinds may be accessed by vehicle for loading and unloading with parking areas and restroom facilities near by. Dogs are always welcome and boats are available if needed.
Women and handicapped hunters are encouraged to join and are always guaranteed a safe and accessible environment to hunt in. Mentors are available for those who feel they need a little extra help getting started and handicap accessible areas are available. Please contact us for more information at 970-221-1362.
