Welcome to the Greenwood Lake community website, a place for visitors and residents to find information about this beautiful area. Not just a static page, this guide will include updated information on area services, dining, entertainment schedules, outdoor recreation, government, and special events. Whether you've decided to spend a lifetime or you're just up for the weekend, visit us often for the information you need.


Located in the heart of the highlands region of New York and New Jersey, nine mile long Greenwood Lake lays like a sapphire surrounded by a literal forest of emerald green. The Greenwood Lake valley is flanked by the Appalachian Trail, Hewitt State Forest, and the Bearfort Mountains to the west and Sterling Forest® and Ringwood State Parks to the east. Only 45 miles from Manhattan, the area is a perfect destination for an afternoon drive or as an escape after a long day working in the city.
