The Delaware River Region

The Delaware River Region is composed of the following 5 counties: Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Mercer and Salem counties.
The Delaware River Region offers everything from a stroll through the past to the fast passed action of canoeing down the Delaware River. If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the legendary Jersey Devil while going through the Pine Barrens or enjoy a glimpse into colonial times by visiting the Old Barracks Museum.
