In 1716 settlers thought the Mamanasco Lake was a great place to store water for a grist mill. The Mamanasco Mill (paper mill) was still operating almost into the 20th century. The remains of the paper mill can still be seen at the end of Pond Road. Some thought Mamanasco was created by beavers damming up the outlet.

There is no gasoline motors allowed on Mamanasco Lake, but there are plenty of row boats and canoes and kayaks. The town of Ridgefield and the State DEEP (Department of Energy & Environmental Protection) has teamed up and created a program to restore the lake, because the habits of all residents using lawn fertilization, cleaning agents and septic maintenance are affecting the condition of the lake.
