We have been receiving emails that some members’ boats have been damaged and stolen from Turtle Island. Please remind your children/teens that Turtle Island is not a playground and that the boats are property of other CLIA members. Anyone caught destroying/stealing personal property will face severe penalties and will have Ringwood Police notified. As a community, the best ears and eyes are yours, so if you see anything/anyone suspicious on Turtle Island or other CLIA property, please call Ringwood Police at 973-962-7017 and notify any of the CLIA board members.

Members with boats on Turtle Island and South Dock;  please be reminded that you are responsible for securing and safeguarding your property when it is stored/located on CLIA property. Please make sure your boat(s) are chained and locked to the solid wood racks/poles and please check on your vessels often. CLIA is not responsible for any damaged, stolen or lost personal property.

Boats left on CLIA property that have not been assigned a spot by the sheriff will be removed and locked in boat jail. The grassy area along the shoreline looking toward the west shore is only a temporary resting spot for members paddling their boat(s) to the clubhouse/beach area. Those boats must be paddled/taken back home the same/next day.
