Ocean Township was incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 13, 1876, from portions of both Lacey Township and Union Township (now Barnegat Township. Portions of the township were taken to create Long Beach Township (March 23, 1899) and Island Beach (June 23, 1933).
Waretown (2000 Census population of 1,582) is a census-designated place and unincorporated area located within Ocean Township. All of Ocean Township is most commonly referred to as Waretown by local residents. The local custom is so widespread that it surprises some new residents that the official name is Ocean Township. Non-residents have been known to confuse Ocean Township with the Ocean Township of Monmouth County. There was a petition drive in 2006 to get a name change to Township of Waretown on the ballot but it failed to obtain enough signatures to get on the ballot.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 32.0 square miles (82.9 km²), of which, 20.8 square miles (53.9 km²) of it is land and 11.2 square miles (29.1 km²) of it (35.07%) is water.
