Landing New Jersey serves as the gateway to scenic Lake Hopatcong with our two Marinas and the State Park and is part of the municipality of Roxbury Township in western Morris County. Our Landing neighborhoods include Port Morris, Silver Springs, Kings Cove, Kingsland 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 6,500 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 water. Please don't think of him as a sea monster, he is actually quite friendly!

“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
“The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount. If we don’t have a proper
fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government
which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State” Harry Truman
