Manasquan Reservoir is a beautiful recreation area, besides a water source for the Howell Township and Monmouth County areas. It has a 5 mile trail around which you may walk, run, bike, and horseback ride. You can also fish for the smallmouth bass, hybrid striped bass, tiger muskie, catfish and panfish. You may bring your own boat, canoe or kayak or rent one there. Wildlife viewing around the res is also plentiful, with plenty of deer and the resident eagles.
