Colder temperatures are on their way, and with them, the possibility of skating, ice fishing, and even snowmobiling on Lake Hopatcong. As more and more ice covers the lake, it's extremely important to make sure you know how to tell when conditions are safe for various activities.
It's important to recognize that ice will never be completely safe. Conditions and unseen or unknown factors can render seemingly safe ice suddenly dangerous. No activity undertaken on ice over water bodies is ever without risk. If in doubt, don't go out!.
