I have lived in the Prairie Creek area for 30 years. I have seen many changes in the Reservoir area and most have been positive. The beach area, although under construction this year is nice although we don't swim there. Many do, and enjoy it very much. The south playground at the beach area is very nice and has all... More

My husband, two kids, and myself came to Muncie for a motorcycle benefit ride. We hardly ever have an opportunity to camp with the kids, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity. It's the first night, 5:20 in the morning, and we have a drunken idiot circus for "neighbors". So far I've heard a barrage of foul language,... More

I have a great school child, and my wife and I took her on a camping trip to this place. The views were beautiful, the water seamed cleaner than most bodies of water located in Indiana. Though the campground did not have a lot to offer, it was right by the water and a small playground. There is a much... More

Since Dennis Tyler was elected as mayor of Muncie, numerous improvements have taken place at this facility. A new bath house and playground equipment have been added to the beach area. 5 rental cabins were added for the 2014 season which is great for those who dont own a camper or tent and the prices of these rentals are a...

I went fishing with my cousin on his pontoon at the Reservoir and had a great time. The area is extremely well kept up and the water was very clean. Caught several fish and yes they were good.

If you stay on your boat all night be ready to get woken up at 5 am by some IDIOT bass boater flying down the lake 30 ft. from shore about 30 mph. slamming your boat against the dock splashing water all over the back of it.. other than that we have always had a really GREAT TIME up here... More

We were fishing on our pontoon late in the evening. I heard from a lot of people before what in this lake they punished you for every little mistake, so we had everything that require on a pontoon, including fire extinguisher. Before we decided go home I put the cover on our bikini top and accidentally shake the lite on... More

I would rate this place higher on the scale of lakes to visit were it not for it being so redneck. Mostly a pontoon and fishing lake as there is no power boating allowed. Definitely don't want to camp there unless you like the Stars and Bars.
