Perhaps it is just me, but 250 per square mile just doesn't seem like that many people.

It looks like NJ is the ONLY state where the entire thing is dark blue. I can't believe it can be dark blue in Cumberland County or Sussex County. When I am there I feel like I am in the middle of the wilderness. I guess if I really went to the wilderness I'd be in for a big suprise lol.

You can't even see the border lines for New Jersey.

What about the Pine Barrens in NJ? How can that be dark blue? Isn't that a sparsely populated area?

250 persons per square mile is good. For an individual county you will have a nice mixture of larger towns, smaller towns, and rural areas. In NW Indiana Porter County has around 350 persons per square mile, but did not feel too crowded to me when I visited.

Porter County feels really rural to me. To think, it would be dark blue.

Those counties shaded in yellow are very rural. The most rural county east of the Mississippi River is Piscataquis County Maine. (This county is shaded in yellow) This area has very few towns at all and limited access roads up in the northwoods. The population density is 4.3 persons per square mile, the lowest in the eastern US.

Actually, the winner is Hamilton County, New York. This county is in the Adirondack Mountains and only has 3.1 persons per square mile.
