Lake Lemon is located in the beautiful rolling hills of south-central Indiana just 10 miles northeast of Bloomington, Indiana. The scenic and tranquil setting attracts boaters and fishermen to this public reservoir.
In 1953 Lake Lemon, was built to serve as a drinking water reservoir and natural resource venue for the City of Bloomington’s expanding population. Lake Lemon was used as the primary drinking water source for the City of Bloomington until the late 1960’s. Currently the reservoir serves as Bloomington’s back up water supply.
There are two publicly accessible parks located on the lake. The largest is Riddle Point Park operated by the Lake Lemon Conservancy district. This park features a boat ramp, native prairie grass demonstration area, a beach, a shelter house, and a nature trail. The other park is Little Africa Wildlife Viewing Area, which covers 24 acres on a peninsula at the east end of the lake and features a nature trail.
Boat launch is offered by a public marina on the north side of the lake and a private yacht club exists on the south shore of the lake.
Also on the south shore of the lake is the Indiana University Aquatic Center. This center hosts a number of activities including sailing, rowing, and water skiing. The facility is home to the Indiana University Women's Rowing Team and Indiana University Club Rowing Team.
