Beach Tags / Beach Opening Reminder
Beach Tags will be available for you to pick up at First Beach, Memorial Day Weekend (Saturday & Sunday). After which, you can call to arrange a pick up or delivery of your beach tags. Please note that beach tags will only be given to those whose annual maintenance fees are paid up to date. No exceptions.
First Beach will once again be the only beach open for swimming this year. Cushman Lake remains in a lowered state and must remain so until repairs and upgrades are completed. First Beach will open Memorial Day Weekend (Saturday, May 23, Sunday, May 24 and Monday, May 25), from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The beach will then be open weekends only until school is out for the summer. After that, the beach will open on weekdays, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. A portable toilet will be available at First Beach for your use during beach hours only. The CLCA looks forward to another successful swimming season to enjoy our beautiful lake and beach.
- Collings Lakes Civic Association
Collings Lakes is a beautiful community of 1041 single family homes, located within parts of Buena Vista Township and Folsom Borough in Atlantic County, and Monroe Township in Gloucester County, New Jersey. Our community boasts five beautiful lakes with great fishing, swimming, boating, canoeing and kayaking, 3 beautiful beaches (Please note that while our dams are in the process of renovations, swimming is temporarily only available at “first” beach) with lifeguards (during hours, AND from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend) and many more benefits for homeowners and associate members including;
Boating & Kayaking
State Archery Range nearby (Piney Hollow Road)
Private Firearms range nearby
Bird and wildlife watching
Many other outdoor sports
Collings Lakes is not an incorporated municipality, however all homes in the community are subject to certain deed restrictions and to the Collings Lakes Civic Association. Homeowners are required to pay an annual fee of $48.00 for their share of costs for maintenance of lakes, beaches, dams and community owned property. For those who have had the experience of living in communities with such maintenance fees, you will know that this fee is more than reasonable; In fact for the benefits conferred to homeowners, it’s one of the best bargains on the planet!
Membership (voting privileges) in the CLCA is voluntary, and at an additional cost per New Jersey Superior Court ruling on September 15, 2006. “Associate” (non resident) memberships are also available to allow those who do not live in Collings Lakes the opportunity to share our beautiful resources. Please see the C.L.C.A, page for more information and pricing.
Now you can pay your Maintenance fees online! Use a credit card, debit card, or a PayPal™ account and get a receipt immediately! Pay off your card at the rate you want, when you want. No muss, no fuss! How cool is THAT? http://www.collingslakes.org/shop/
