Landing New Jersey is on scenic Lake Hopatcong and is part of the municipality of Roxbury Township in western Morris County. Our Landing neighborhoods include Port Morris, Silver Springs, Kings Cove, Kingsland, Shippenport and Shore Hills. We are suburban in character, interspersed with pleasant tracts of woods and several small ponds. Landing sits "high" in New Jersey, the business area is at an altitude of 950 feet, with some streets in the Shore Hills area reaching 1,200 feet ! Landing has a population of approx 6,500 people, several dozen white-tailed deer, a few bears, and one elusive water creature named "Hoppie",  who lives in the depths of Lake Hopatcong and can occasionally be seen swimming on the surface of the Lake. Please don't think of him as a sea monster, he is generally considered to be quite friendly! Hoppie Lake Hopatcong Monster is a community public service, edited by a resident of Landing. The website that's by Landing NJ people, for Landing NJ people ! Over 50 present & former Landing residents have written remembrances that appear on our Letters Page. You're invited to submit your vintage Landing photos, stories & history as well as ideas for additional pages to us. In addition to the information pages we've already posted, we stand ready to use our "voice" to help Landing get it's fair share of resources.

“God who gave us life, gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, 
a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?”
  Thomas Jefferson
"The Constitution was made for the people and not the people for the Constitution." Theodore Roosevelt
“The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount. If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background,
we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State”
   Harry Truman
