Highland Lakes

Country Club and Community Association

Beaches & Swimming

Like the name implies, Highland Lakes has its fair share of lakes to enjoy. For members who prefer to be in the lakes rather than on them, there are seven beaches to choose from, all of which are staffed by certified lifeguards, and are subject to inspection by the Sussex County Department of Health and Environmental Services.

Swimming can be a glorious activity whether you are casual or competitive, but it can be a scary experience — and even a life-threatening one — for those who don’t know what they’re doing (and their loved ones, as well). Swimming safety for everyone is of paramount importance in our community. With that in mind, swim lessons are made available to children of all ages (members only, of course), and those lessons are taught by a select group of Highland Lakes’ lifeguards who are certified as Water Safety Instructors.  Members who are at least 11 years old can also receive lifeguard training if they’re interested — get more information about lifeguard training here.
