All About Indian Lake OH

Lake Locations: USA - Midwest - Ohio - Central -

Indian Lake is a 5,800-acre water playground in central Ohio’s Logan County. Named after several Native American tribes that used to inhabit this area, the lake is fed by the Great Miami River and several area creeks. Indian Lake was a feeder lake to the Miami and Erie Canal in the mid-1800s.

Indian Lake’s blue waters and area scenery will reel you in and make you fall in love. With no speed or horsepower limit on the lake, you’ll feel the breeze in your hair as you explore the lake’s 30+ miles of shoreline. Bring your own boat or rent one at any of the local marinas and moor up at any of the lake’s four boat ramps and docks. A special treat on Indian Lake: as the only inland lake in Ohio with lighted buoys, you can take your boat out in the evenings for stargazing.

Anglers find themselves in seventh heaven on Indian Lake, as fishing tournaments accent the spring and summer calendar. It seems as if these waters are teeming with saugeye, largemouth bass, white bass, crappie, bluegill, walleye, yellow perch, and catfish. Make sure you have your Ohio Fishing License, though; fishing is illegal without it.

There are as many water activities at Indian Lake as your mind can create: take a dip into the cool waters, visit one of the many Indian Isles, get your adrenaline pumping while water skiing or tubing, or simply float on your back as you watch the clouds pass you by. Two public beaches offer the opportunity to interrupt your water fun by running your toes through the sand, building a sandcastle, or having a picnic on the picnic benches.

If you’d like a little land activity, head off to Zane Caverns and discover two levels of well-lit stalactites and stalagmites. Ohio Caverns, a bit farther, is the largest cavern system in Ohio and features beautiful crystal-white rock formations. If you’re in the mood for equestrian action, go riding at Marmon Valley Farms. For history buffs, no trip to Indian Lake is complete without a visit to Piatt Castles, Mac-A-Cheek, and Mac-O-Chee, old homes known for their architecture, antiques, and Native American artifacts.

After a long day of fun and excitement, curl up with a book or dine out in one of the area’s restaurants. Lastly, don’t forget to cap off your night with a view of the sun setting over the sparkling lake waters.
