Indiana's largest lake, near the Indiana University campus, features a scenic stone-bluffed shoreline and wooded hills. Monroe Lake is located in south central Indiana. The Corps of Engineers completed the lake in 1965. Monroe Reservoir is 10,750 acres water with 23,952 total. The lake has three state recreational areas: Hardin Ridge, Paynetown, and Fairfax.
Indiana's only federally protected U.S. Wilderness Area, the Charles C. Deam Wilderness Area, is located on the south shore. The pool elevation is about 538 ft above sea level year-round.
