eautiful Jefferson Township is nestled deep in the northwest corner of Morris County, New Jersey. This countryside town is just minutes off of RT. 80 and located less than an hour from New York City.
The township is divided between two distinct population
centers: one on the shores of Lake Hopatcong, the other in
the northern woodlands of the municipality. This Morris
County township is a quiet, predominantly residential area
with vast undeveloped forests and county parkland.
Jefferson Township encompasses 42 square miles, including the Mahlon Dickerson Reservation and Lake
Hopatcong, New Jersey’s largest fresh water lake. Jefferson has many other lake communities; Lake Shawnee, White Rock Lake, Lake Winona, Cozy Lake, Longwood Lake, Lake Forest, and Lake Swannanoa.
All of these communities enjoy the resources with activities ranging from fishing and swimming to water skiing and boat racing. The Rockaway River’s source starts deep within Berkshire Valley giving local anglers a trout fishing experience. Nature abounds Jefferson with a vast population of wildlife and foliage. Beneath giant oaks and maples is a forest floor that is home to bears, deer, foxes and much more.
Known as the “Year Round Recreational Capital” Jefferson always has an outdoor activity going on. Visit Camp Jefferson for a picnic on the fields, and a good old fashion square dance at night. Weekends at both Ridge Road Field and Lakeside Field are the playgrounds for the Milton Recreation Association and the Jefferson Sports League. Attend a high school sporting event and watch the Falcons battle against teams from the
SCIL. So whether it’s hiking with the local Boy and Girl Scout troops or flying with the Falcons, the atmosphere and people make it an enjoyable experience for all.
