ABOUT THE MANASQUAN RESERVOIR

Manasquan Reservoir is located in Howell Township of Monmouth County in the state of New Jersey, the 10th most populous state.

The borough of Manasquan has been an established community for over 125 years. Native Americans of the Lenape Tribe lived on the land and it is from their Unami language that the borough and lake were named. The Unami word for island is man-a-tah; for wife, squaw; and for stream, han, combined is Manatahsquawhan. Manasquan, literally meaning "stream of the island of squaws," is the English pronunciation.

LOCATION

The entrance for the visitor center and parking is located off Windeler Road near the junction of I-195 and Route 9.
