Over the last five years have visited the Lake and surrounds many times. We've eaten at restaurants on the Lake shore, driven around parts of the Lake, visited the State Recreation Areas and enjoyed walking around the Overlook Recreation Area, which is just off Rt. 101 at the tip of the Lake closest to Brookville. Have some beautiful pictures of... More

Great fall camping. Hayrides for the kids. Visited Antique Machinery Show at the Franklin County Fairgrounds the last weekend in September. We all had a great time!

Brookville Lake is a hidden gem! We love going to the beach, boating, and exploring all the trails! If you live nearby, definitely invest in the yearly pass!

We camped here the 2nd week of April and found it to be a great place. It was pre-season so there weren't a lot of other campers. The sites are good sized so you are not on top of each other. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. Grounds were well maintained. A store with your basic needs and lots of... More

Beautiful area...can't wait to visit again! So much to do here! Had a great time! Close to Cincinnati. About an hour away. Visited the Zoo for the day. Tubed down the Whitewater River. Went fishing, went to the shooting range and archery range at the nearby Quakertown State Recreation area, enjoyed the beach and camped at Mounds State Recreation area.

Has never been to Brookville Lake, Indiana's deepest lake with over 5600 acre lake. 11,000 acre state park. I used the campground, the beach, and campground boat ramp. I tow two jet skis with a pontiac vibe. Boat ramp was sorta steep with signs stating slick ramp... I launched with no problems, seeing other two wheel pickup trucks having issues...... More

We've been scouting Brookville Lake for decades. The best analogy I can think of for Brookville Lake is a semi-remote northern lake such as that which you might find in Ontario. This large reservoir, built in the mid 70's, covers several thousand acres. It is approximately 18 miles in length, and averages slightly less than a mile in width. Depths... More

We camped in the Quakertown area. It was so nice to be away from the crowds. We had full electric sites (all of them are). Quakertown has it's own beach on the lake - just the right size, not crowded at all. Easy to get to the local towns if needed. If we are ever planning to go to that... More

We stayed in the Mounds Recreation Area campground. The grounds were well maintained, and the facilities in good working order. We camped in the C area, which had full electric and water hookup. We visited the beach area, which was very clean and well kept. We really enjoyed our stay and will return!

Visited last summer and can't wait to be back. For less then $10 for a whole family, how could you go wrong. They have a snack bar, bathrooms, playground, volleyball. Pack a cooler and relax in the sun. Beautiful view. Lots of steps to walk down to get to beach area but it's worth it. My kids had a blast.... More
