Manamansalo is also an excellent destination for cyclists. The bicycle trails of Manamansalo Island have a connection trail to Manamansalo camping ground.

The Manamansalo camping ground rents canoeing and rowing boats on Lake Särkinen of Manamansalo Island.

There are landing places for sailing and motor boats at the Manamansalo Island harbour, Kuoston Kulma of Kuostonsaari Island and on the islands of Kaarresalo and Honkinen. You should have your own boat though..

The recreational fishing area of Manamansalo consists of 13 small forest lakes where originally live the Whitefish (Goregonus lavaretus), the Pike (Esox lucius) and the Perch (Perca fluviatilis).

In addition, Rainbow trouts (Oncorhynchus mykiss), Arctic chars (Salvelinus alpinus), Lake salmons (Salmo salar m. sebago) and Trouts (Salmo trutta) have been planted in lakes Särkinen, Syväjärvi, Iso-Peura, Soikko-Peura and Kota-Peura. Lakes Särkinen and Iso-Peura are the most popular fishing places, also in the winter.

Wild North fishing permit (no 5571, Manamansalo) is needed for fishing in the recreational fishing area. Lure fishing, fly fishing, angling and ice fishing are allowed. A fisherman can have two fishing lines at most. Fishing permits are sold in the reception of Manamansalo camping ground and in a machine at the gate of the area.
