The population of this township is 24,156, according to the 2010 United States Census. Much of the township is part of the U.S. Army base, Picatinny Arsenal. Rockaway Township is a rather large area in size with over 45 square miles, which includes lakes, rivers and mountains. It is also home to the Farny State Park and Mount Hope Historical Park.

For those who are native to the country, they also have diverse lineages. Their first ancestors were Irish, German, Polish, Italian, English and Russian.

Rockaway Township has a long and rich history as evidenced by the two sites located in this area which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The first is a stone mansion, the Ford-Faesch Manor House, built in 1768 and an important place in the Revolutionary War. The second is an iron ore furnace from the Civil War era known as Split Rock Furnace.

In addition to the military research facility and manufacturing center, Rockaway Township is home to one of the largest shopping malls in the entire state.
