Middle Township

Centrally located within the Jersey Cape, this township covers approximately 75 square miles and is comprised of 15 communities. 

A large portion of the township is situated along the Delaware Bay with an abundance of wetlands and salt marsh that serves as a natural habitat for shore and migratory birds.  Each year during late May and early June, millions of shore birds migrate to the area to feed on the horseshoe crab eggs that are deposited along the bay shoreline.

Middle Township serves as the County Seat and has a rich, historic past.  Today, visitors driving through the quaint, historic district on Main Street will see many of the buildings that were constructed more than a century ago. Many of the bayside communities began as fishing villages and still offer excellent salt and freshwater fishing opportunities. 

Some of the finest camping resorts are also found here.  Facilities ranging from tent to full service RV and fully-equipped cabins and trailers are available for rent.

Other outdoor opportunities include biking, hiking, golfing, sailing, and jet skiing, to name a few.  The Cape May County Park and Zoo and County Park South and Wildlife Refuge are situated in Middle Township as are the Wetlands Institute, Leaming's Run Gardens, the County Historical Museum, The Middle Township Performing Arts Center, two public golf courses and a large shopping district.   Many fine restaurants and motel accommodations are also found in this area.
