It is considered the first river island in the state of NJ's north Delaware river area where the three state lines meet in the rivers border. Eden Islands comprises of two islands with the larger island referred to as Adam, and the smaller island referred to as Eve. Their given name is due to the beauty and unique " Garden of Eden" like properties of this Garden state river island surrounded and protected by the natural beauty of this regions Delaware river. 

The islands are surrounded by the Delaware river where both the Delaware and Neversink river converge. This is why the islands were at times also referred to as “Neversink Islands”. The west side of the island river channel is referred to as the Bennekill channel which is the historic name designated to the shallow east river frontage between NJ and these river islands and Mashipacong Island in Montague, NJ.

Historically, these islands were used by the Lenape Native Americans who would reside in the region, and used them as important hunting, settling, camping, and farming ground. Some of the river islands located in the Delaware river are still being used for farming and modern day camping.
