Welcome to Lake Forest Yacht Club

Dear Lake Forest,

We are continuing to monitor our rapidly evolving situation with regard to COVID-19 and are following state and local guidance regarding closures and restrictions. Although we are not in the position to police the activity of members utilizing our grounds, we do expect that everyone takes responsibility for keeping themselves and their families safe by practicing social distancing and other preventive measures as we have all been advised. Based on Jefferson Township's most recent announcement that all public playground and basketball courts are closed, we have also determined that closing our (private) basketball courts and playgrounds would be a necessary action to follow the recommendation for social distancing.

Also, based on today's guidance from the governor, all social clubs must be closed as of 8 p.m. this evening, which includes our LFYC clubhouse. It pains us to say that all clubhouse rentals and any social functions or gatherings will not be permitted until further notice.

Although we do not know when the current restrictions and closures will be lifted, we will continue to promote our clubs' upcoming functions in future issues of the Porthole. We will provide an update at least one week in advance regarding the status of upcoming events. We want to continue to 'advertise' them just so you are made aware of events we may be able to maintain once the restrictions have been lifted.

Also, in an ongoing effort to keep our community safe and healthy, we have decided to implement remote management of our office operations until further notice. Phone calls will be answered as usual during regular office hours.

The office number is 973-663-0158 and the email address is office@lfyc.org. Any payments for master lease, membership dues, or boat slips can be processed over the phone by credit card or by placing checks through the mail slot in the office door. As always, the office or any Trustee can continue to be reached by phone or email as needed.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and we wish you all well.

Founded in the 1950s by Arthur Crane, Lake Forest Reservation is a year-round lake community.

It is located on the northern shore of Lake Hopatcong which is the largest lake in New Jersey.
