White Lake

Sparta Township, Sussex County, New Jersey

60 acres


From Hamburg Boro Route 23, take Route 94 south to a left onto White Lake Road.


White Lake and the surrounding area sits on top of an aquifer that supplies drinking water and also forms the headwaters of the Wallkill River.


The beach had long a been a popular summertime outdoor swimming area.

Purchasing White Lake were the Trust for Public Land (through a grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation) and the Sparta Township Open Space Trust Fund (established by a voter referendum in November 2000).


Some of the land will probably be used for new soccer fields and baseball diamonds.
