Croton is an unincorporated community located along the border of Delaware and Raritan townships in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States.[2] County Route 579 (through which the township line runs down the center line) is the main north-south road through the area which consists of mostly forest within the Hunterdon Plateau and some houses and businesses along Route 579 and nearby New Jersey Route 12.[3] The headwaters of the Wickecheoke Creek are located northeast of Croton before it heads downstream through the community on its way to the Delaware River.
