During Festival Day weekend, parking is limited. On Friday night and all day Saturday, there aren’t any parking restrictions around the clubhouse, beach 1 parking lot, or the streets surrounding the clubhouse. On these days, you can park on the street. But please be respectful of our neighbors who live near the clubhouse. Do not block private driveways or park on private property. Please drive with caution as there are many people walking the streets throughout the Festival weekend.
On Sunday, there are police-enforced no parking regulations in effect on the streets surrounding the clubhouse. This includes White Meadow Road, Clubouse Way, and Upper Mountain Avenue. Please pay attention to the NO PARKING signs. Rockaway Township police will ticket your vehicle.
White Meadow Road is also closed on Sunday from approximately 11AM until 11PM from Hibernia Avenue to Clubhouse Way.
Please note that we will no longer be issuing separate handicapped parking passes through the office. Any vehicle that displays a NJ state handicapped parking placard or license plate will be permitted to park in designated areas near the clubhouse, however, availability of these spaces is EXTREMELY limited and the terrain in the parking area is hilly and rocky. Guaranteed handicapped parking is not possible. Parking staff will direct you when you arrive and let you know if a space is available. If one is not available, you will be permitted to drop your party off close to the event, after which you can drive your car to a parking spot on a street that is not restricted, or park at a bus parking area and take our free bus back to the festival.
On Sunday, we operate 2 school buses throughout the day to provide transportation between the Festival and various locations around the lake. In particular, there is plenty of parking available at the Copeland Middle School, which is also a bus stop. Signs are posted around the lake at each bus stop. The buses run from approximately 12:30P M Sunday afternoon until 10:15 PM Sunday night.
