Big changes could be coming to Lake Hopatcong after an in depth survey was taken by students at Seton Hall. Many have requested a boardwalk, plus more restaurant and shop options. I firmly believe that restaurants can be a great way to rejuvenate an area. This survey seems to be a win for all involved, only costing the town $3,000 instead of the normal going rate upwards of $30,000. Those surveyed don't want more housing or chain stores, but rather smaller, independent options. I love that! I love visiting Lake Hopatcong and would definitely go more often if there were more dining and drinking options on the water. We have had several great memories on Lake Hopatcong, I even took my parents from Boston there on a fun afternoon. I believe that you can build on Lake Hopatcong without sacrificing its beauty.
Picture I took from the boardwalk on Lake Mohawk. I would love to be able to take a picture like this of Lake Hopatcong too!
