Morse Lake Information & News

Morse Lake Quick Facts:

  • Morse was constructed in 1956 as a water source for the City of Indianapolis. The lake has 1500 acres of water, 35 miles of shoreline and 7 mi of navigable water.
  • Although we often refer to it as Morse Lake, Morse is technically a reservoir. Because it is a reservoir, water levels can fluctuate by 4′ or more.

  • Noblesville offers just about anything you could possibly need in terms of ammenities – from all of the big box stores (Best Buy, Walmart, Meijer) to a vibrant & quaint downtown square offering locally owned restaurants, shops & businesses.
  • The Town of Cicero offers public docks for short term docking (perfect for a stop to get ice cream at Alexanders) and a wide variety of dining options within walking distance from the lake
