Lake Manteno offers exceptional fishing, with good-sized bass, bluegill, crappie, and even trout during winter months. Situated right on the lake, the Manteno Sportsmen's Club has a beach with full facilities, including bathrooms, showers, and a snack bar. The club's lounge is open to the public seven days a week and is a great place to relax, with billiards, snack foods, and a bar.

Manteno parks have something for everyone, including a splash pad at Legacy Park and lighted baseball fields at Heritage Park.
