The rolling hills of south-central Indiana cradle deep ravines and creek beds, a departure from the glacier-flattened lands of the northern parts of the state. The landscape is varied and surprising, a new formation around every bend. The three major lakes in the Bloomington area come up like surprises, a glistening oasis just beyond a hillcrest. Griffy Lake is convenient and quiet, a quick reprieve from the bustle of campus and downtown. Lake Lemon is lined with homes and guesthouses, a family-friendly vacation spot. Monroe Lake is massive, with plenty of space for fast boating and quiet fishing.
