Upper Township

Upper Township was first settled in the 1690's by whalers, fishermen and sailors.  Visitors continue to be attracted to the beautiful, rural, and peaceful settings of the northern-most township of Cape May County.  Most of the township is still in a natural state, and attracts nature lovers from all over. 

Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Delaware Bay, visitors can spend the day hiking
or biking throughout the lush forests, exploring
the inland waterways or kayaking through the wetlands.

In addition to its rich, historic past, nature plays a big part in attracting people to this area.  A large portion of the Great Cedar Swamp is located here and is a natural habitat for birds and butterflies. Upper Township is a very diverse area where nature is as important as progress. 

Many recreational activities such as camping, hunting and fishing are popular attractions.  Cape May County Park North, on Route 9 in Palermo, is part of the County Park system and is open to the public.

Upper Township is close enough to the excitement of the resorts but far enough away for those looking for quiet and solitude.  There are many modern accommodations, specialty shops and find restaurants to choose from, in addition to some of the best camping facilities on the Jersey Cape.  Other activities available include golfing, boating or birding.
