This motto of this quaint little borough is, "All Roads Lead to Netcong". Netcong is, in fact, well-connected by New Jersey's transit system to other small places and much bigger ones. The little borough lacks a veterinarian working within its boundaries. The adjoining larger communities provide plenty of options located within a short drive.
The borough maintains three green spaces for a person and a leashed canine friend to visit. DiRenzo Park offers a patch of green space, a playground, a few trees, and a scenic view of Lake Musconetcong. The lake provides plenty of opportunities for residents and visitors to fish or launch a watercraft. The borough also maintains a space to launch boats. Dogs are not allowed on the beach, though.
A great adventure awaits you and your leashed pup just three miles west of Netcong. Here is where you'll find Allamuchy Mountain State Park. This state park has over 9,000 acres of land set aside for conservation and recreation. Allamuchy has fourteen miles of marked trails and twenty more miles of unmarked ones. Most of these trails are moderate to rugged in difficulty. This state park is a place where the local Boy Scouts learn to rock climb, so there is some elevation to contend with.
Next to Allamuchy is Stephens State Park. Stephens is only nine miles north of Netcong. This state park has six miles of unmarked trails. This is one of the state parks that allows you to bring your furry friend along when you want to camp. Pet-friendly campsites must be reserved in advance of your stay. An additional fee is charged for their use. A great stay in the woods is in order before taking that road back to Netcong!
