About Forest Lakes Club

Nestled in the rolling hills and pristine forests of Sussex County, rests the small community of Forest Lakes. At it's center lies a beautiful private lake - a 45 acre body of water - where neighbors gather together to enjoy each other's company, as well as a recreational lifestyle. It is a place that families, singles and retirees from all walks of life call home.

Developed in the late 1950s by the Westby Corporation, Forest Lakes was, from its inception, envisioned as self-sustaining through its Club. Today, Club membership continues to ensure its lake, property, clubhouse and beaches remain private for its members, as well as provide a means for community unity through its many organizations and events.

Welcome to our Lake Community




The Board has revisited the "Guest Policy" and decided to allow each Full Member family to bring as many guests as you have purchased 2020 guest badges.  All guests MUST be accompanied by a Member - (except for seniors who are not required to be with their guests)Guests must wear Guest Beach Badges purchased by the Member family.  

No parties will be allowed on the beaches.

As always you may go to your "favorite" beach...however, please be advised that if that beach has reached full capacity you could be asked to go to another beach.

Please remember to always wear your badges.  The Beach Manager and lifeguards don't know all Members, so they will be checking for badges.



We submitted our pre-opening questionnaire, our mitigation document required in response to the Governor’s Executive Order #143 and received compliant test results for all of our beaches.


The Docks are in the water and swimming has been approved with certain social distancing limitations by Sussex County Department of Health.


To make your beach day a fun day and a safe day, we are asking that you adhere to some fundamental rules… rules to protect your family and all the other families in our community. Remember… safety first! SO LET’S ALL COME TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS SEASON A SAFE AND SUCCESSFUL ONE.

  1. SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED – please stay 6’ apart.

  2. Beaches may be subject to capacity restrictions.


  4. No groups over 6... any group should be Household Only.

  5. Guests are now allowed on beaches for the number of 2020 Guest Badges you had purchased. (see first paragraph for more detail).

  6. Children’s play areas (swings, etc.) are Closed.

  7. No volleyball until further notice. 

  8. No grilling until further notice.

  9. As always, no dogs or pets are allowed on the beach.

  10. Fishing is allowed but NOT from designated swimming areas.
