Message from Commodore Bonnie Margolis


Welcome to the Garden State Yacht Club, the gem of Lake Hopatcong.  It’s a very special place.

Every year, new members are welcomed and soon feel at home.  Family members and guests are encouraged to visit and share in the fun.

The club bustles with summer sports and activities seven days a week.  Boat in the morning and float in the pool when the lake gets busy.  Learn to sail or kayak.  Eat lunch on the deck and relax later at Happy Hour.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, enjoy the best food and entertainment Lake Hopatcong has to offer.  Watch our local eagles soar overhead and the boats cruise by below. Ride from the clubhouse to the docks in our historic tram.  Listen to live music by the pool Sunday afternoons or spend time with friends and guests.  Many great memories are made here.

GSYC is truly a club for all seasons.  Social events are held all year round.  This is possible due to dedication and hard work by flag officers, Board Members, Committee chairpersons and  our members.  They strive to make the GSYC a unique place of fun and friendship.  I thank all of you and am honored to be your Commodore.   See you at the club!
