Lake Monroe Information
About Lake Monroe
The lake is the largest lake entirely situated in the state of Indiana with 10,750 acres of water surface area. It is also home to Indiana's only federally protected U.S. Wilderness Area, the Charles C. Deam Wilderness Area, located on the south shore. Construction on the lake began in 1960 when Salt Creek was dammed south of Bloomington, Indiana. It was finished only five years later in 1965, at a cost of $16.5 million. Monroe Lake, Indiana, is full of rolling hills, beautiful thick forests and babbling streams, an excellent choice for a relaxing vacation. Only 50 miles south of Indianapolis, the Lake is located near Brown County State Park. It is close enough to be convenient to get to, but far enough away to feel like a true getaway.
