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.

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
