Why do people hate on Camden county? It's probably one of my favorites. It does have some ****ty areas like any other county (Pennsauken, Camden, Lindenwold), but it has a lot of really, really nice towns like Voorhees, Cherry Hill, Collingswood, Haddonfield, and some of the other regular middle-class suburban neighborhoods that don't even feel like they are 15 minutes from a major US city.

I also like Burlington, Bergen, Hudson, and Monmouth a lot. I haven't been to a lot of counties in north Jersey but there's probably a little something I like in each. I grew up all my life in Ocean so I don't really care for it, but I do like Toms River, Brick and the shore towns. I dislike Salem (rode through there once last summer and it felt like I was suddenly in rural Kansas), and Cumberland for being useless counties unless you like being far away from everything. I probably would dislike Ocean a lot for that reason if it weren't for the northern part.

How come everyone thinks that everything in south Jersey is desolate? Even though it is a lot less populace, Camden, upper Burlington, Gloucester and those counties right outside of Philly are still part of one of the top largest metropolitan areas in the country..

could you elaborate? not trying to be contentious - just curious.

The Best New Jersey counties in my opinion are Camden, Essex, and Hudson.

Combination of southern Monmouth and northern Ocean. Very parallel areas, great beaches, tons of things to do and plenty of waterfront for boating and coastal living. Straight shot up I-195 to get "out west" and to Philly and not a terrible headache to get to NYC, either. Taxes aren't as outrageous as many other places.

Awesome restaurants as well.

(Towns: Spring Lake, Sea Girt, Spring Lake Heights, Manasquan, Wall, Pt. Pleasant, Pt. Pleasant Beach, Bay Head, Mantoloking, Lavallette, Brick, Toms River.)

Only if you're a corrupt politician.

Can't really comment on the South Jersey counties since I grew up in Morris county and only visited South Jersey while driving through to Philly or points further south.

Hands down, without a doubt, Hunterdon County. Why? Its the only county in NJ without a single bad town. Every town is good, every school is good. Lowest crime in NJ and a beautiful landscape to top it off.

Bad side- taxes are outrageous. You get what you pay for.

Don't know about my favorite but my least favorites are Passiac and Bergen County. Passiac is a wasteland and Bergen is a wasteland with a bunch of rich people in it.
