Steuben County with more than 101 lakes, creeks and navigable rivers is the mecca for outdoor activities in the tri-state area. Hamilton Lake is the fourth largest lake in Indiana. Hamilton Lake is a favorite among fisherman. There are large bass tournaments nearly every weekend. The lake is known for a good selection of northern pike, small and largemouth bass, perch, bluegill, and crappie. Speedboats, sailboats, jet skis and water skiing are all allowed on the lake. There is a public access site where people may launch boats for free. Two of the finest full service marinas in the county are located on the lake providing everything you will need for your boating enjoyment. We have boat dock facilities for our hotel guests. We have a sandy beach in front of the hotel for our guests to lay out in the sun and go swimming. There is also a public beach in Hamilton as well as a park with tennis courts and a hiking trail.
