Morse Reservoir, a water supply reservoir, is located in Hamilton County, Central Indiana, approximately 20 minutes north of Carmel and 45 minutes from downtown Indianapolis. It takes about one hour to reach the Indianapolis International Airport. Located on Cicero Creek and built by the Indianapolis Water Co. in 1952. Known as the taller, skinnier brother of the popular Geist Reservoir, Morse Reservoir in Hamilton County offers nearly the same acreage of boating pleasure, minus the crowds. In fact, it is widely known that even though both Geist and Morse share the same slips and boat ramp on Morse Lake Marina, the slip waiting list is far shorter at Geist. Here you will find all forms of boating fun, as well as an abundance of quiet, solitary, places where a fisherman can cast a line on the shore. Just make sure your fishing license is current before you take out your rod and reel -- many fishermen have come away with fines due to local State Fishery crackdowns.
Morse Lake has approximately 1,500 acres of water and 33 miles of shoreline. It is this shoreline that attracts so many families to live on or near the water. Waterfront prices start at $325,000 and can reach $1 million+. Off the water, prices run from $175,000 to $350,000.
