Enjoy Lake Lefferts

Unload kayak by lake ramp next to entrance. Parking across street from launch, walk back across using crosswalk.
Lake Lefferts is a lake in Matawan that was formed by the damming of Matawan Creek in 1928. The lake is situated between Main Street, Ravine Drive, and Route 516, crossing under Route 34 between the First Presbyterian Church and the Buttonwood Manor restaurant. The lake was named after real estate developer Jacob R Van Mater Lefferts
This shallow 69 acre lake is the perfect place for a afternoon paddle.
Canoe rentals are open Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost is $15 an hour. Canoes and kayaks are available to rent. Life vests are also available on site. Bring a valid I.D. to leave for deposit.

    Forgot how much fun a good old fashioned water fight could be. Picking up Sue's dropped water gun and turning it on her, Priceless....

    The Lake Lefferts paddle was my first time as part of the group. Really enjoyed it and look forward to joining up for future trips.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
