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




starting Memorial Day Weekend!


These are not easy times. We are all itching to get back to normal. Unfortunately however that will take some time. There are going to have to be sacrifices that will be necessary. However for the safety of our community, these sacrifices are necessary to combat the virus. We do not want the alternative to happen.


Twenty years ago people said that Forest Lakes would not be able to host the WVSC championships because of parking issues and limited space to accommodate parents, children, and spectators. Through the efforts of our community, friends and volunteers, WE GOT IT DONE! And afterwards the comments were that it was the BEST RUN championships that were ever held. WHY? Because WE all stepped up to the plate and did what was necessary to make Forest Lakes proud. Hopefully we can do this again within our own community under these adverse conditions. TEAMWORK! Let's all work TOGETHER. Let's all COOPERATE. Let's beat this thing TOGETHER! And let's have an enjoyable summer.
