About Webster Lake
Nearby Fort Wayne and South Bend, Indiana

Tucked away in Kosciusko County, Indiana, is the spring-fed Webster Lake. It spans 774 acres with nine miles of lush shoreline.

Webster Lake was created in the 1800s when several small natural lakes were impounded with a grist mill and dam on the lake's western side.

Webster Lake is located in between the cities of Fort Wayne and South Bend, Indiana. From Webster Lake, Fort Wayne is an hour's drive south. Similarly, South Bend is about a 70-minute drive north.

This makes Webster Lake the perfect getaway spot for residents looking to leave the city behind.

Muskie Fishing and Lake Recreation

One thing this lake is hugely well-known for is its muskie fishing. Webster Lake is considered the best muskie fishery in the state of Indiana, and Webster Lake continues to provide trophy-sized fish for anglers because of the consistent stocking.

Fishers can also look out for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye, black crappie, yellow perch, bluegill, redear sunfish, bullhead, and carp in Webster Lake.

If fishing isn't for you, residents can also enjoy sailing, boating, swimming, jet-skiing, or relaxing with a picnic on the beach.

Socks Marina sits on the eastern shore of Webster Lake and is a great place to gas up your boat, stop by for a snack, or utilize their boat slips.

Shop Local or Take a Quick Trip to Indianapolis

Restaurants, local shops, and grocery stores sit on the western side of Webster Lake. Residents can enjoy an excellent breakfast at Maria's House of Pancakes, shop at Heart of the Lakes Antique, or get a drink at Bourbon Street Pizza.

If you want to make the short drive to Indianapolis, you will not be disappointed. Families can visit the Children's Museum of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Zoo and enjoy the exhibits, animals, and learning opportunities throughout the zoo.

If you are looking to brush up on your history, there is no shortage of museums in Indianapolis. Visit the Newfields, Indiana State Museum, Eiteljorg Museum, Conner Prairie, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, and more.

The White River Gardens, Canal Walk, Cultural Trail, and White River State Park offer scenic walks of the city.
