|Eagle Creek Lake
Eagle Creek Lake and Park, owned and operated by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Division of Parks and Recreation, is situated in central Indiana 10 miles northwest of Indianapolis in Marion county. The centerpiece of Eagle Creek Park (the sixth largest municipal park in the nation), Eagle Creek Lake / Reservoir provides 1,350 acres of recreational waters in which to fish, boat, sail and swim.
Kayaks, canoes, Hobie Cats, sailboats, pontoons, wind-surfing boards and pedal boats are available for rent, and operating lessons are offered. Other activities available in the park include picnicking, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, archery and cross country skiing.
Because of boat size and motor restrictions, whether fishing from a boat or shore, anglers do not have to compete with speed boaters, jet skiers, tubers or water skiers anywhere on the lake.

The larger boats must have a small electric trolling or gasoline “kicker” motor to use for propulsion. A public boat launch ramp is available for accessing Eagle Creek Reservoir near the bait shop.
