Croton is an unincorporated community located along the border of Delaware and Raritan townships in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. 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. 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.
