You will have access to all amenities included with the residence; beaches, club activities, and entertainment for adults and children year round.

In the Fall come enjoy a hike through one of the local State Parks and take in the colorful fall foliage. Visit nearby local Farms for apple and pumpkin picking, corn mazes and hay rides for the kids, or enjoy a day at one of the local Winery's. With the cooler weather, take a short drive to the Lakota Wolf Preserve to watch the wolves and listen to the howls of the wolf pack!
During the winter months, once the lake freezes over, be adventurous and spend the day skating or cross country skiing, exploring all the coves and shorelines the lake has to offer. Join in a pick up game of ice hockey or have your own skating party! Warm up by sitting lake front at your fire pit enjoying a warm cup of hot coco or hot toddy (whichever you prefer!) and making smores! If fishing is your thing, bring your tip-ups and spend the day out on the ice catching pickerel, pike and/or perch, with an occasional large mouth bass. Hike, snow shoe or cross country ski on one of the local State Park trails, or bring the sleds along for some sledding on the nearby hills.
In the warmer months relax on your own private dock, have fun fishing, watersking and boating, or spend the day birdwatching, hiking and/or biking here or at the nearby state parks (Allamuchy and Kittatinny). During the summer months you will have access to 2 private sand beaches with diving board and slide. One beach is just steps away, the other a short walk over a wooden suspension bridge to the main beach with a community clubhouse and activities and entertainment for all ages. Paddle by canoe or paddle-board to one of the clubs floating rafts, or picnic and explore one of the many private islands.
