    Lake Hopatcong

    Hey guys,

    I usually ride in Greenwood Lake or down the shore, but this year I'm looking into lake hopatcong. Could you guys tell me the name of some of the ramps? Also, are there any areas where we could beach the skis and hang out for a while. I know this really doesn't exist at GWL and I am really interested in doing this. Let me know. Thanks guys!!

    There's a state owned ramp that i launched at last summer on the main road. I forget the address. It was $10. Some of the places up there on not PWC friendly or will charge you $20. I was only up there once, i spend my summer down in barnegat.

    Sounds good to me. I don't think I'll be riding much before May, as I will still be in school...

    How do you guys like the NJ lakes with 3 seaters?

    I have never ridden a lake. I have heard of speed limits, small riding area, non-pwc friendly, romper room ramps, etc. Is that all true?

    The only lake I've ridden on is Greenwood Lake. I usually go on weekdays. The ramp I go to is $10 for weekdays, $15 for weekends. I think there is a 45 mph speed limit on the weekends, but I'm sure about that. I think I read that somewhere on here, but I never saw that myself. You can ride anywhere on the lake, I think the lake is 9 miles long. The only problem with GWL is that there is no real beach to ride to and hang out. That's what I'm really looking for. The only beaches there are for swimming. Anyway, the weekdays in the summer are empty, but the weekends get crowded, as with most lakes. Hope that helps.

    I'm at Manhattan College, not to far from home. Actually, if you guys wanted to put a ride together while I'm still at school, I could come home for the weekend.

    Trust and believe there will be plenty rides. During the week and weekends.
    But most riding is done in the rivers, bays, and inlets.
