Welcome to the Stowaway Park Association Website

The Stowaway Park Association consist of 40 homes located in a secluded area of West Milford Township in New Jersey. The Smith family who worked the area as farmland constructed our development in the 1970’s. In the 70’s the land was parsed out and sold as 40 individual plots.

West Milford Township has a current population of 26,759. West Milford Township is in Passaic County. West Milford was settled by the Lenni Lenape Indians, a peaceful tribe, that sold their land to the English and moved south. Later, English, Dutch, and German settlers realized the potential and wealth of West Milford from trapping and mining and began to develop communities.

The forest provided fine habitat for wildlife which was prolific. Animal pelts that were extremely valuable in the Old World were easy to come by in West Milford; thus, trapping became a main source of income for the early settlers.
