Over 481 acres along the Manasquan River have been acquired by the Park System and are now protected in their natural state. This preserved open space provides river access for fishermen and boaters with canoes and other small watercrafts. Please be aware that navigating sections of the river may be challenging and/or require numerous portages due to natural obstructions and fluctuating water levels.
