Indian Chain of Lakes.jpg

Welcome to Dallas Lake 

Dallas Lake is located in a chain of five lakes, sometimes called the Indian Lakes Chain. The five lakes are connected by the Little Elkhart River near the headwaters of that same stream. The chain begins just a mile or so west of the town of Wolcottville, Indiana.

Dallas Lake is one of two all-sports lakes in the chain. The Indian Lakes Chain is comprised of Westler, Witmer, Dallas, Hackenberg and Messick Lakes. The lake has no public boat launch, but can be accessed by boat from other lakes in the chain with access ramps.

The other three lakes in the chain are considered fishing lakes and boat speeds are limited. All five quiet water bodies are enjoyable for canoeing and kayaking.


Water quality in the lake is good, and the Five Lakes Conservation Association works with State agencies to upgrade shoreline conditions and educate property owners on the best practices to maintain that condition. 



Dallas Lake is in LaGrange County, Indiana. 
It has an elevation of 271 meters, or 889 feet.
