A quiet refuge from the daily hustle and bustle, Brookville Reservoir in the southeastern corner of Indiana, lies on the east fork of the Whitewater River Valley near Brookville Indiana. It is a part of the Brookville Lake -Whitewater Memorial State Park Complex.
The lake is home to two State Recreation Areas: Mounds State Recreation Area (not to be confused with Mounds State Park in Anderson) and Quakertown State Recreation Area.
For scenic beauty the best time to visit is October when the fall colors are displayed in all their splendor.The lake has more than 25 miles of hiking trails, boating opportunities, and nationally known recreational and sport fishing.
Two beaches and more than 400 campsites make this an ideal family vacation spot, with plenty of activities to keep the whole family busy.
The area was purchased by the federal government for flood control and to provide a place for wildlife and recreation. More than 11,000 acres provide a variety of habitats for plants and wildlife. Brookville is one of the few sites in Indiana where walleye grow big enough for fisheries biologists to milk the females for eggs to supply walleye fry to many lakes in Indiana.
Traces of prehistoric Native American mounds are still found throughout this valley. The area is known by some worldwide for its significant deposit of Ordovician fossils. These 450-million-year-old fossils, reminders of a primeval inland sea, can still be seen.
