Tuckerton is a borough in Ocean County, New Jersey, named for founder Ebenezer Tucker (1758–1845), and was a port of entry, but not the third Port of Entry as commonly believed, in the United States As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 3,347,[1][2][3] reflecting a decline of 170 (-4.8%) from the 3,517 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 469 (+15.4%) from the 3,048 counted in the 1990 Census.

Tuckerton was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 18, 1901, from portions of Little Egg Harbor Township.

The borough is surrounded by Little Egg Harbor Township, but is politically independent. Because Tuckerton and Little Egg Harbor share the same 08087 ZIP code and Little Egg Harbor has no true "downtown" area, many refer to Little Egg Harbor and surrounding suburbs as "Tuckerton".

Tuckerton is home to the Tuckerton Seaport, a working maritime museum and village.
