The walking paths are well maintained and the views of wildlife and reservoir are interesting. The facilities are clean and the fire pit in the main bldg takes the chill off cooler days.

Sunrise hike at the Reservoir
Nov 2019 • Solo
Arrived just as the sun was rising and was able to get a few nice images before hiking the 5 mile perimeter trail. Beautiful trail with plenty of wildlife and photo ops. My only regret was not getting there during the fall foliage season.

Beautiful Nature trails
Oct 2019
Excellent place for nature walks as well as for those who like to do marathon training! Takes approximately one and half hour walking depending on your speed and it promises to offer beautiful nature scenes all along the way. Great place for those who like to meditate and there is also an area for the children to play!

Fishing Derby 2019 - No fish caught but a success!!!
Jun 2019 • Family
I visited the Manasquan Reservoir this weekend for their annual Fishing Derby. The event was sponsored by the Monmouth County Park System. The event itself ran from 2-5 PM, but you could go earlier to get a good spot on the dock and there are also a few staff members to show you how to fish. I hadn't fished in 10+ years and it was the first time for my 8 year-old so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity, at only $8 per person which includes a cups of worms and no fishing license required when you sign up for the event. The visitor's center is nice and well kept. All staff there were very nice. There were a few staff members there all of which were very patient and nice. What I loved was how accommodating they were of children. The bait shop had all the basics you need for fishing including knowledgeable staff members. There is a main dock there where you can fish as well as a smaller dock a little further that you need to take a trial/path to get there. There were a total of about 40 people there and I witnessed about 10 fish or so being pulled up during the 2.5 hours we were there. We didn't catch any but may have had better luck on a less crowded dock. Also you can rent boats to go out on the reservoir which is great. We did not venture much further than the dock and visitor's center but plan to on our next visit. Overall it was a great trip and I reached my goal, I got my little guy interested in fishing. I plan to go back on a later date, better equipped. There were a few vending machines near the visitor's center, though I am not sure if there is any other food available there. My suggestion would be to visit one of the many Walmarts nearby and stock up on the essentials before visiting the reservoir. Again, kudos to the staff there. They treated everyone, especially the children top notch.

Interesting Local attraction

You can see nice scenery, learn about birds and animals. Outside are nice picnic tables. You can also take a boat ride on the resevoir.

Boating tour
Jun 2019 • Family
Weird boating tour, the captain kept interrupting the tour guide. I kinda felt bad for the young tour guide. Also, they kept insisting my 2 year old sit down. They were like incredibly out of touch with reality. How can you expect a toddler to sit for 45 min? Especially when the captain(s)? Were just strolling around. They were really into birds though, they were extremely sensitive towards them. Overall a mediocre boat tour with weird OCD old boat captains who wouldn't stop talking

Not Just For Walking
May 2019 • Family
The walk around the reservoir is nice. For small children they get tired or bored. At the main entrance there is a playground with multiple activities. My 4 year old grandson could play for hours. There's a small open area that we fly kites and even jump rope and play kick ball.
Make sure you have bug spray and sunscreen. Enjoy!
