This is a magnificent outdoor activity center. 5 mile hiking or biking trail. Rent kayaks. A very beautiful getaway. In the winter they have a roaring fireplace with an area to have a picnic. Eat right along the water.

You can bike, walk, enjoy the fireplace, fish, take a boat ride or just enjoy the outdoors. We have rented kayaks. Very reasonable.

Great place to take a safe 5 mile scenic walk around the reservoir. Great place to bike, kayak or just walk your dog. The visitor center is also very nice to visit.

I absolutely love having this 5 minutes from my home. The beautiful scenery and well cared for walking/biking trail never disappoints. Has kayaking and Eco boat tours in the summer and ice skating in the winter. You can catch beautiful sunrises as well. It also has a playground and a wonderful nature center for the children with a bird watching... More

I walk here periodically and one day I needed to use the facilities and I happened to go in. This is a great place to bring the young'uns and get them interested in the natural world. Manasquan Reservoir is a great family place to enjoy the outdoors.

What a wonderful nature trail ... a five mile joy of every animal native to NJ for walking or bike riding... and if you have a sail boat or canoe, a day pass on the reservoir is an awesome treat for either the kids or girlfriend or wife. Well worth the day with nearby places with great food on Rt... More

No matter what the season, always fun to see the birds and wildlife of the reservoir. Great way to spend an hour or so and let the kids explore.
