You don’t have to travel to the Jersey shore to enjoy a day at the beach.

Here in Morris County, picturesque Sunrise Lake in Lewis Morris Park offers fun in the sun for everyone!

In addition to swimming, visitors can enjoy boating on the lake, with pedal boats and row boats available for rental.

Sunrise Lake also features Wibit, an obstacle course-like track in the lake where players can race each other in the water. Wibit kayaks are also available for a relaxing ride or a race with family or friends.

Sunrise Lake is open through Labor Day, with the exception of Aug. 30 and Sept. 3. Information about beach access fees and Sunrise Lake’s hours of operation may be obtained by calling (973) 829-8257 or by visiting the Morris County Park Commission Web site, .

Sunrise Lake is located on Mendham Road in Morris Township.
