An Expat Talks about Living in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Mountain Lakes

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

Since Mtn. Lakes is a small town with about 6 small lakes, most residents who move in, meet other residents while enjoying the lakes. Every home owner is allowed to purchase lake passes. People who don't live in the town are not allowed to purchases passes but can come as a guest of a resident. There are swimming areas around the perimeter of the beaches as well as docks for canoes, kyacks and "sunfish" sail boats. Motor boats are not allowed. This is to prevent excess pollution and to protect the many children who are enjoying the water. There are two clubs that residents generally join. One is the Mtn. Lakes club located on Mountain Lake and the other is the Rockaway River Country Club located right over the town border in Denville on the Rockaway River. Both offer dining, tennis courts and swimming pool. The Rockaway River Club does offer Golf and is a larger club in general. Since many of the residents move to this town for the school system a lot of the parents belong to booster clubs to support the athletic organizations of the school system. Lacrosse is by far the largest and even if you don't have children who play this sport you can still join to help support the team and meet other residents. There are many other clubs residents can join, such as the League of Women's Voters, Mtn. Lakes Garden Club and Volunteer Fire Department.
