Thinking of moving to Shongum Lake?
Shongum Lake Property Owners Association (SLPOA) is a private homeowners association in Randolph, New Jersey. SLPOA is made up of more than 700 properties with rights to use Shongum Lake. SLPOA membership includes beach access, boating privileges, free swim lessons, a clubhouse, and a full calendar of social events.
The American Heritage Dictionary describes a neighborhood as “district or area with distinctive characteristics,” but what does that really mean? Actually, you know one when you see one. Shongum Lake is such a place. Neighborhoods are warm and welcoming and neighbors care about each other and work together to make their home a great place for everyone. Shongum Lake is such a neighborhood. A drive through our streets will reveal people walking and talking with one another, people enjoying each other’s company on a deck or patio, and kids playing together. Throughout the year, the lake itself is a hub of activity. Whether it is ice skating in the winter, swimming in the summer, or taking in the breathtaking foliage in the fall, there is always something being shared among neighbors at Shongum Lake.
Here are some of the questions we get asked frequently.
What does it mean to have lake rights?
It means because of where your home is located, you have either a license or deed to use Shongum Lake and its facilities.
What if I don't want the lake rights?
The lake rights are irrevocable and you would still need to pay the sustaining yearly membership.
How much are the annual membership dues.
