Top 5 Must Haves for A Great Day on the Lake

Everyone is ready to get out and enjoy the sunshine and water on Lake Hopatcong

But, to fully enjoy a family water adventure, you’ll want to make sure you have the right supplies. Nothing ruins a great day like a wicked sunburn or hungry stomachs! Here are our top 5 must haves for a great day on Lake Hopatcong.

Sun care Items.

While the temperature may not be in the 80’s just yet, the sun is still able to give you a dreadful sunburn in the spring. To protect yourself from the sun, be sure to pack sunscreen, hats, and cover-ups like long sleeve pants and shirts. And, don’t forget your eyes! Sunglasses protect your peepers from harmful UV rays. Forget your sunscreen or hat? No worries we carry all of your sun protection needs at the Market.

Safety Equipment

Beyond lifejackets, which are legally required, you’ll want to make sure you have the right water safety equipment with you at all times. This includes a first aid kit, flare gun, rope, and maps. Need a life vest for Fido? We’ve got that, too.

Waterproof Bags

No one wants to get water in their boat, but it’s inevitable. That’s where a waterproof bag can be a lifesaver. From large bags to hold towels and shoes, to small bags for phones and money, we stock multiple sizes of waterproof bags to make sure the only things that get wet are you and the kids!

Water Toys

From tubes to water guns to goggles, you’ll want to make sure you bring the fun for your day on the lake!

Food and Beverages

Hydration is key on the water, so be sure to pack enough water and other drinks for everyone. And, no lake day is complete without a great deli sandwich or sweet treat! Stop by our Deli and Ice Cream Parlor on your way to snag a grab-and-go sandwich, snacks, and a few treats to make the day even sweeter.

We want you to have an unforgettable experience on Lake Hopatcong. So, pack well and Live the Lake with us this season!
