Landing, New Jersey on scenic Lake Hopatcong in Roxbury Township, NJ !!
to the Landing, New Jersey
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 7,300 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!
REMINDER: The Lake has just finished the once every 5 years "Drawdown", a 5 foot lowering of the water to allow repairs on docks. Water is starting to go back up now. (January 2014)

“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, 1781
