Hopatcong Steamboat

Lake Hopatcong was a booming tourist location in the 1880’s, when visitors would arrive by train. Passengers who arrived to enjoy the warm sun and cool lake would be taken to their destination by steamboat for only 25 cents! Putt through a replica of “Hopatcong” – the largest of once thriving White Line company’s fleet.

Ogden Mine Railroad

This 10-mile stretch of railroad played a pivotal role in two bygone industries. First, the tracks were built to transport iron ore to Newark. Later, harvested ice from the lake was transported on the tracks to massive store houses. When at this hole, look out on the street – our street was once the Ogden Mine Railroad bed.

The Wildcat

Calling all thrill seekers! The Wildcat was the beacon for all seeking adventure on the Lake. The 80-foot-tall roller coaster was designed by the famous Herbert Schmeck. When it was taken down in 1983, the Wildcat was the oldest of it’s kind still standing.

Allen’s Pavilion

Visitors to Lake Hopatcong came looking for cool water, warm sun, and fun, and they found it at Allen’s Pavilion. Built in 1887, Allen’s Pavilion was a main attraction at Nolan’s Point and included a dance hall, photo studio, billiard hall, ice cream shop and more. Today, the Windlass restaurant next door stands on the site of Allen’s Pavilion.

Main Lake Market

The history of Lake Hopatcong and it’s water flows through and under the Main Lake Market! Still a favorite of visitors and locals of Lake Hopatcong, the Main Lake Market boathouse was constructed in 1905. The actual Main Lake Market can been seen across the lake!

Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club

Tourists visiting Lake Hopatcong needed a place to see, and a place to be seen! Many yacht clubs and associations sprang up around the lake, including the Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club. Formed in 1905 the building stands in almost the same condition as it did in 1910 when it opened. Rumor is that the building was built from trees cut from Halsey Island across the water from our location.

The Lake Hopatcong Dam

The Lake Hopatcong Dam, built in 1827, is the most important structure on the lake. Today the dam continues to flow into the Musconetcong River eco-system. The dam held a very important role in the economic and natural history of the lake – including creating the Lake Hopatcong as we know it today.
