Squankum (Lenape for "place where evil spirits dwell") is an unincorporated community located within Howell Township in, Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. The name Squankum was the name used for a town in Gloucester County, which was changed to present day Williamstown (see note above). This was due to postal regulations that prohibited the two towns from having the same name.

Description

Located within Howell Township, Squakum is near Allaire State Park. Major county roads in Squankum include 524 and 547. Interstate 195 provides access to Squankum, along with its neighboring town, Farmingdale, via exit 31B.
