The South River is a 16.3-mile-long (26.2 km)[1] tributary of the Great Egg Harbor River in Atlantic County, New Jersey in the United States.[2]

It rises in Richland and joins the Great Egg Harbor River approximately 3.7 miles (6.0 km) downstream of Mays Landing.[2] A short outlet has been cut from the South River to the Great Egg Harbor River across from Catawba, allowing water traffic to bypass the lower part of the river paralleling the Great Egg Harbor.
