Koteewi Lake - Recreational Waters, is set to open and offer adventures of the aquatic nature!
The twenty-acre body of water will provide ample fishing challenges for serious sportsman, as well as novice anglers. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources will monitor the lake - and a valid fishing license will be required. And while swimming is not permitted, quiet boating activities - canoeing, kayaking and sailing - will allow casual navigation and enjoyment of nearby wildlife. The boat ramp will accommodate a variety of watercraft (use of electric trolling motors only). Lakeside, you'll find free public parking, as well as shelter available on a first come - first served basis.
