There are several lakes called Monroe in different parts of the United States -two in Florida, one in Mississippi and one in Indiana. We are in Indiana. The camera is installed in the sailing club, Lake Monroe Sailing Association. As you can see, a huge number of sailing vessels of various types are moored along the shores of the lake.

The nearest large city, Bloomington, is located nine kilometers from the marinas of Lake Monroe. Not only professional athletes come here, but also lovers of boat trips. Anyone can rent a boat and spend a great weekend there.

On the territory of the Lake Monroe Sailing Association, there are several recreation areas, including a park where you can have a picnic. Families with children can take sailing courses. Training programs are available for adults and children over nine years old. Several organizations operate on the shores of Lake Monroe. In addition to the association of sailing ships, you can find a large scout camp here, Ransburg Scout Reservation.

The artificial lake was created in the first half of the 1960s. In order to create a new natural site, the Salt Creek was flooded. Lake Monroe was created as the primary source of water for Bloomington, as well as a reservoir that prevents flooding.
