A Message from Commodore Michael Gilbert (on 10/1)


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

The GSYC is a friendly place.  Every year, new members are welcomed by all 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.  Pick what you like to do, or try something new.  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 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.

Every year, summer days fly by and Labor Day arrives too soon.  Fortunately, GSYC parties and activities continue all year long.  All of this is possible due to the dedication and hard work of our flag officers, Board Members, Committee chairpersons and to our members, whose contributions 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!
