We stopped by Brookville lake to do a little hiking. The lake was still frozen, and the trails were a little muddy. it was nice to get outside and enjoy. We go here a couple of times a year. Gets a little crowded, especially on the weekends. Stop by and enjoy,

It's a big draw, but we were here for other things. Stopped by on the way out of town at the overlook by the dam. Very pretty and clean.

We had to call with an issue about someone entering the... More

The swimming area does not extend as far out into the lake as some of the other state beaches, but was nice for small children.... More

I went for a family reunion in rural Indiana and we rented three cabins in the Whitewater Memorial State Park. They were not just clean, but beautiful. They were close enough together for us to be connected by green lawns and trees, but separate enough to be private. The interiors were well decorated and functional. The lake is down the... More

I boat and fish here every year. Yea, you need lake permit here too. Read your regulations people and you will see. Anyway this is a great lake for fishing, boating and camping. Check it out.

Not worth the trip, nothing great about this place, lived beside it for 6 years, visited it once in a while. Over priced merchants, bad roads, lot of better, prettier, lakes to go to.

My kids love it here. We go to the "beach" area. We take a picnic and spend an entire afternoon. The kids splash in the water, build in the sand. The water is shallow, the sand is clean.
