BLUE-GREEN ALGAE INFO: Blue-green algae is found in our lakes year-round. Under certain conditions, cells can reproduce in large numbers, and can result in a harmful algal bloom (HAB). We test many of our beaches where people use the water in the summer, but HABs may occur in other seasons, too. Watch for algae accumulation, avoid drinking or cooking with lake water, and do not allow children or pets to swim where algae accumulation is present. For more information about blue-green algae visit www.algae.IN.gov or read our FAQ sheet at Blue-Green Algae.

Raccoon Lake, IN
Status: Open year round. Season Dates
Includes the Raccoon State Recreation Area and Historic Mansfield Roller Mill.
Native forest and large rock outcrops line the upper part of Big Raccoon Creek. Cecil M. Harden Lake resulted from the damming of the creek for flood control. The lake also provides recreation, wildlife management and economic benefits. A variety of fish, flora and fauna can be viewed at the property.
Nearby Historic Mansfield Roller Mill is a preserved, working example of industrialization in Indiana at the turn of the 20th century. This 1880s flour mill uses machinery from that time to show visitors how flour and cornmeal were processed from wheat and corn. It is an almost complete and unchanged example of flour mills from this time period.
