About Indy Lakes

Zelmer and Lassie Cross moved to a barren area of Indianapolis in 1947 and started digging.  Over 70 years later, their legacy still lives on with Billy, who bought the business in 2013. 


Today, Indy Lakes, featuring Lake Le-An-Wa on 16 acres, continues the great fishing and camping value with a modern take:


- Wi-Fi service

- Upscale RV park

- Luxury Lodge & Cabins

- The finest fishing lakes and baitshop in the mid-West


Open 24/7 during season with the RV park and fishing open year ‘round (baitshop is closed during winter)!
