Morse lake is formed by Big Cicero and Little Cicero Creeks. Morse was constructed in 1956 as the 3rd reservoir of water for the city of Indianapolis. The other two lakes are Geist and Eagle Creek. Morse offers deeper water than Geist and does not have restrictions on boating, as does Eagle Creek. However, you'll travel a little to get here. Driving time from the north side of Indianapolis is about 30 to 45 minutes.
Morse has 1500 acres of water, 35 miles of shoreline, and is 7 miles of navigable water from Little Chicago road in Noblesville to the bridge at state road 19 in Cicero.
