Boating at Brookville Lake


Watercraft of all types, including sailboats, speed boats, fishing boats, pontoons, cabin cruisers, kayaks, and wave runners, share the waters of  5,260 acre Brookville Lake. The wide open areas are perfect for water skiing, tubing, and sailing, while the quiet, hidden coves offer refuge for fisherman and leisure boaters. You will also find sail boats, fishing boats, kayaks, and house boats taking advantage of the large “no wake” zone at the north end of the lake.
