Stafford Township Reviews

Stafford has a great community, great recreation, top notch medical services, excellent environmental record. Close to Atlantic City, Philadelphia, New York and Long Beach Island with reasonable house prices. A community of pride which bounced back from super storm Sandy better than ever. Taxes are stable and reasonable.

It's a nice area with lots of parks and outdoor recreation. Close to Long Beach Island. Decent schools. Only problem is traffic during the summer season.
