South Branch Raritan River is a tributary of the Raritan River in central New Jerseymarker in the United Statesmarker.

The source of the South Branch Raritan River is the outflow from Budd Lakemarker, a glacial remnant located a few miles northeast of Hackettstownmarker. The river flows out of Morris Countymarker, down the middle of Hunterdon Countymarker, and along the western edge of Somerset Countymarker.

At its end, it forms the border between Branchburg and Hillsborough Townships and, upon reaching the border of Bridgewater Township, joins the North Branch Raritan River to form the main Raritan River, which flows generally eastward from point.

The river’s local grassroots organization is the South Branch Watershed Association. Their mission is to “Protect the Water Resources of the South Branch of the Raritan River and its Watershed”. Established in 1959, the South Branch Watershed Association is one of the oldest and largest watershed associations in New Jersey, covering 276 square miles, 3 counties and 25 municipalities. The group offers homeowner well testing, environmental education, river monitoring, annual river cleanup and stream restoration.

The unincorporated village of South Branchmarker is located in Hillsborough Township.
