Lake Hopatcong is the place to be in the summer with all of the fishing, boat races and other events that are always a big draw for the Lake. But the Number #1 event is always the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Block Party in the Spring.

LHF | by Jess Murphy: The Lake Hopatcong Foundation’s Student Leadership Team, led by Meghan Craig of the Morris County Environmental Science Academy at Jefferson High School, met on February 12 to discuss their plans for 2020 projects to help improve the environment on and around Lake Hopatcong and its watershed.

The date has been set as Saturday, June 27th for the 5th Annual Veterans Cruise on Lake Hopatcong, and that means the scramble for seats has already started for this special tribute to our veterans — America’s heroes.

On Saturday, February 8, 2020, the Lake Hopatcong Elks #782 held their 11th annual “Leap in the Lake for our Special Kids.” While the lake had no accumulated ice this year the jumpers still felt the 35-degree water as they took the brave plunge.

Planning for the 2020 Lake Hopatcong Block Party is underway. This annual tradition that brings local community groups, businesses, organizations and food vendors together for a day that kicks off the summer season and celebrates all facets of Lake Hopatcong life is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2020 at Hopatcong State Park. 

The Annual Leap into Hopatcong Lake is a one of the greatest fund-raising events that happen on Hopatcong Lake during the winter. This great event that pits human endurance against raising funds, takes place every February at the Hopatcong State Park and is designed to raise money for special needs kids.
