With four towns, two counties, and the state,  all claiming at least some portion of Lake Hopatcong, the community can sometimes feel disjointed. One of the goals of the Lake Hopatcong Foundation is to build the sense of lake community, and to support the local businesses that surround it.

Programs & Exhibits

A variety of programs and exhibits, open to the public, are hosted at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental & Cultural Center.
