Salamonie Reservoir

11,594 acres and a 2,855 acre lake. This property boasts sixty ponds, marshes and wetlands. The name Salamonie was derived from the Native American word “O-sah-mo-nee,” which means “yellowpaint.” Native Americans made yellow paint from the bloodroot plant which grew in great abundance along the winding banks of the river.  Be sure to visit the nearby Salamonie River State Forest, which encompasses 850 acres and offers many recreational opportunities to its visitors.
