Why You Should Visit
Glacial basin lakes surrounded by extensive wetlands can be found at the Marsh Lake Complex in Steuben County, which is made up of the Marsh Lake Conservation Area, the Seven Sisters Lake Complex, Wing Haven Nature Preserve, and several state-dedicated nature preserves. Plant communities are varied and include shrub swamp, forested fen and swamps, marsh and dry upland forest. Much is to be seen at this complex, including the 849-acre Marsh Lake, one of the last remaining undeveloped lakes in Steuben County.
Marsh Lake Complex is owned and managed by Indiana's Department of Natural Resources (Marsh Lake) and ACRES, Inc. (Wing Haven & Seven Sisters). Work done here is in partnership with the Indiana Heritage Trust.
