Lake Surprise Boathouse

             By 1930, park users could rent rowboats at a rustic boathouse along the southern shore of Lake Surprise. Nearby was a refectory where park visitors could buy refreshments.

             A restroom building stood on the hillside up behind the boathouse, where it could also serve park visitors from the Loop Area parking lot. All three buildings were dismantled by the 1970ís. Boats are still allowed on Lake Surprise, with the proper permit decal (call 908-527-4900).
