16) Cagles Mill Lake (Lieber State Recreation Area)

In 1952, Cagles Mill Lake was built as Indiana's first flood control reservoir, protecting the Eel and White river watersheds. Mill Creek feeds the 1,400-acre lake and is home to beautiful Cataract Falls, which resulted from two pre-glacial bedrock ridges buried beneath ancient lake sediments of the Illinoisan glacial period. In the 1800s, the area was populated by the Miami, Shawnee and Potawatomi. Plan a picnic in the activities field, where you will find horseshoe pits, basketball courts, and plenty of play areas for the kids. The state of the art Aquatic Center is open during the Memorial Day to Labor Day recreation season.

Cagles Mill Lake had an estimated 417,713 visits during 2014/2015.
