The community was developed on the site of an amusement park. Houses in Rancocas Woods were first built in the 1930s. There were problems with the community when first developed. No sewers were installed, because of limited drainage, which caused floods to occur during heavy rainstorms. The water pressure from fire hydrants was unsubstantial—the volunteer fire department had to pump its water from the nearby Rancocas Creek.
Rancocas Woods is located on the Rancocas Creek, a major river that empties into the Delaware River. Exit 43 on Interstate 295 can be used to access Rancocas Woods.
