Lake Hopatcong Activities

Lake Hopatcong offers camping, water sports, fine dining and much more. The Sunday Sailboat regattas on the lake are a sight to see... especially when the wind kicks up! Remember, when watching from your boat not to go into the course area! And, most important is that a sailboat always has the right of way when not being powered by a motor.

Water skiing! Yes this is the place to be, the many coves of Lake Hopatcong offer wonderful water skiing conditions. No matter what your water sport activity is... waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing or tubing, Lake Hopatcong has great areas and is usually like glass in the early morning.
