What a great place for a rowing regatta. The night before, we had dinner at Rick's which is on the lake (a dammed up creek). Fantastic venue - smooth water, easy access.

We love this park because it's close to home and doesn't get really busy unless there is an event. We take boats and kayaks out and enjoy being on the water.

Wow - what a great natural area! 30 minutes from downtown Indianapolis and you are at a magnificent lake with boating options galore. If you're not a water baby then try a walk or hike on the trails. Beautiful scenery - perfect day out!

Nothing like being at the lake on Memorial Day weekend! Enjoyed watching the sailboats and relaxing on a warm Indiana spring day.

Went here with my family to enjoy some nature. It´s a big place with some 1400 acres of water and around double that with land. A great place to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy many outdoor activities. Great for families.
