Like Batsto Village, Atsion was once a thriving iron community. Atsion also had life as a "planned community", and as the "Atsion Farm" of Joseph Wharton. Reminders of Atsion's past are visible on the east side of US 206.

Atsion is now a part of Wharton State Forest. It was a part of the New Jersey's purchase of the Wharton Tract in the mid 1950"s.

Today the Atsion Recreational Center and lake serve as the focal point of Atsion.
