**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SKATE PARK LOOKS LIKE IT HAS NOT REOPENED, IF ANYONE HAS MORE INFORMATION COMMENT BELOW, THANKS!**
81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong, NJ. Definitely one of the best playgrounds we have been to. It also has a skate park across the parking lot. *partially fenced in* (UPDATE on the partially thanks to commenter below), and lots to do for pre-school, school-age kids.Has a great sandbox with toys, swings, slides, and restrooms nearby.
From I-80 W take exit 34B which is NJ-15N toward Jefferson/Sparta. Continue for just over 5 miles and then turn right onto Weldon Rd toward Oake Ridge/Milton. Camp Jefferson is less than 1 mile ahead on your left.
This delightful campground hosts a fabulous playground complete with sandbox and tons of great climbing equipment. Programs, activities and special events run on site daily and day camps during the Summer. There is also a skatepark on site which welcomes bikes, blades and boards something hard to find in Morris County! Visit www.jeffersontownship.net for more information.
