Greenwood Lake Info
Originally posted on the NY section but they suggested I post here.
Having some family visit town with some nephews in the Summer. I know its a bit early but want ot get some planning done.
They are staying with some other family around the Monroe/Woodbury area in NY. I want to take the 15f and go take the kids tubing and have some fun in the water. Greenwood lake sounds like a good bet but it sounds like it is also super busy on the weekends.
Is there a beach that I can pull up to where I can swap one kid for another so that they can take turns tubing? Maybe even swap spotters since i am sure riding backwards all day can be annoying, lol.
I wouldn't mind joining the family without pulling the ski onto the trailer, is there a beach where i can just pull up and anchor the ski?
Are there any other bodies of water you would suggest that are close?

GWL does get more crowded on the weekends, but early in the summer is not as bad. During the week, the lake is pretty much empty.
I have been looking for a beach like your talking about, but I don't think there is one. There is a state park on the NJ side which you can pull the ski up to and change passengers, but I'm pretty sure your not supposed to do that. Also there is a rocked-beach just on the NY/NJ border where you can do the same, but again, I think it's illegal. There is no place to do exactly what your talking about, legally.
I still have yet to try out Lake Hopatcong, but I heard its nice.

Thats what i was afraid to hear.
I was thinking that maybe the better option is to just rent a pontoon boat for the day. Considering 10 people in total we can use that as our central hub and swap out tubers that way.

Lake Hopatcong is the same way on weekends and they have speed restrictions also. There's a state ramp that I think is $10 to use and a couple docks to hook your ski too.

Both of those places are fine no one ever gets bothered for switching passengers at either of those locations. The Marina's on the Jersey side of Gwl tell waverunners and jetski guys, if your going to switch riders go to the state park, they do this because they dont want the waverunners coming in and out.
My recomondation would be to launch from the castle tavern on the ny side, there way pwc friendly probably the only one on the lake, i park my waverunners right next to the launch which is kinda of sandy jeres a picture of it parked there. you can see the amount of skis just around my ski

How's the lake-weed this time of year, down by the park? Last time I was down there I had a terrible time with the weed.
