Tinicum Township [†] is located along the western banks of the Delaware River at the eastern edge of upper Bucks County. Framing the township's western border is Tohickon Creek, which meanders in a southeast direction before emptying into the Delaware. Tinicum Township is served by two main arterials: Route 611, which runs north-south along its western border, and River Road, which follows the banks of the Delaware from Bridgeton Township at the township's northern border, down to Plumstead Township at its southern border. The township is located about an hour-and-half drive north of Center City, Philadelphia, and a two-hour drive southwest of New York City.

Tinicum Township's landscape is characterized by rocky hills, steep, wooded stream valleys, and rolling farmland. The township is known for its significant natural and historic resources, spacious parkland, and rural, undeveloped countryside. Tinicum's outlying location, as well as its resource limitations, including flooding, ground water supply, and lack of suitable land for wastewater treatment, has contributed to the area's limited development and small population.
