Thousands of years ago, glaciers churned across the
land, shaping the landscape as they went. In their wake
they left the approximately 101 lakes that give Steuben
County its character.
It was the fertile land, abundant wildlife and the lakes
that drew early settlers. The lakes, transportation system
and a strong work ethic continue to lure residents.
The county can trace its history to the 1830s when
settlers first made inroads into the community. It is named
after Baron Frederick Von Steuben, a Prussian general
who fought for the United States in the Revolutionary War.
Steuben County is one of the fastest growing non-
metropolitan counties in Indiana. Its population was
34,185 in 2010.
The attraction of the county is multifaceted.
The lakes are foremost. It also boasts major
transportation routes with I-69 and the Indiana Toll Road
crossing in the county, and various state roads and U.S.
highways traversing the area.

20, provides air service.
Industries are sprinkled throughout Steuben County in

farms dot the county’s 198,400 acres, raising crops and

when it was platted by Thomas Gale and Cornelius

Fremont was originally founded as Brockville, a name
that is still reflected in many different community facili-
The community was platted Jan. 20, 1837. Prior to it
being platted as Brockville, the village was known as
Willow Prairie. The town’s name was later changed to
Fremont because there was a Brockville in Franklin and
the similarity in names created much confusion for postal

named for early American explorer John C. Fremont.

Many of the more heavily populated lakes in Steuben County are served by
associations that deal with a variety of issues and organize activities. Some lakes
have neighborhood associations separate of the lake associations.

Steuben County might best be
known for its lakes, of which there are
over 100 (for tourism marketing
purposes, the number 101 is used).
The county’s lakes range in size from
a few acres to 1,034 acres, which is Lake
James, one of the state’s largest natural
A majority of the lakes are in
Jamestown and Pleasant townships.
That’s where the Lake James chain is
located, which includes Big and Little

Steuben County offers a wide variety of sports and
recreational activities, especially with the presence of
Trine University, the YMCA of Steuben County, Pokagon
State Park, Pigeon River State Fish and Wildlife Area and
the 101 lakes.
Along with Trine, the presence of five area high
schools — Angola, Fremont, Hamilton, Prairie Heights and
Grace Baptist Academy — gives spectators an opportunity
to watch a wide range of sports.
College, prep sports
Trine University and the five high schools serving
Steuben County offer a wide range of athletics.
The sports offered at Angola, Fremont, Hamilton,
Prairie Heights and Grace Baptist Academy include
baseball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, boys’ and girls’ cross
country, football, boys’ and girls’ golf, gymnastics, boys’
and girls’ soccer, softball, boys’ and girls’ swimming and
diving, boys’ and girls’ tennis, boys’ and girls’ track and
field, volleyball and wrestling.
Trine University offers baseball, men’s and women’s
basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football,
men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor and
outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer,
softball, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s volleyball,
men’s and women’s lacrosse, women’s field hockey and
Trine is an NCAA Division III member and is a part of
the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association,
America’s oldest collegiate athletic conference.
Trine has upgraded its Shive Field football stadium
with artificial turf, lights, press boxes, locker rooms,
weight and training rooms, and offices. The university is
coming off one of its most successful seasons ever and
another trip to the Division III national playoffs.
There are also area adult and youth leagues and
programs for baseball, basketball, bowling, card playing,
equestrian, fishing, football, go-karts, golf, hunting,
running, sailing, shooting sports, soccer, softball,
swimming, tennis and volleyball.
Angola Motor Speedway is a three-eighths of a mile,
sanctioned asphalt track for stock car racing. It is located
at 2850 N. C.R. 600E, Fremont. The telephone number is
495-7223. The season runs from May through September
with racing in super late models, modifieds, street stock
and mini-stock classes. Along with grandstand seating,
the track also has skyboxes available for rent.
To drive a boat with a motor of 10 horsepower or
greater one must be at least 15. Those over 18 need
driver’s license or state-issued photo identification card.
For ages 15 to 17, operators must have completed the
official Indiana safe boating course and also must have a
state identification card or driver’s license.
Generally, lakes less than 300 acres in size have
speed limits. Many lakes in the county have public
Otter lakes, Snow Lake, Lake James and Jimmerson
Lake. Other major lakes in these two townships include
Lake George, Barton Lake, Crooked Lake, Fox Lake and
Clear Lake, in the northeastern corner of the county,
is considered to have some of the best water quality in
the state, according to authorities with Indiana University
and the Indiana Department of Environmental Manage-
Hamilton Lake, which is practically surrounded by the
town of Hamilton in the southeastern corner of the
county, has 802 surface acres.
Lake Gage, a round, kettle-shaped lake near Orland,
is about 332 acres and like Clear Lake, has extremely
high water quality.
With all of the lakes along with Pigeon River, Fish
Creek and Fawn River (Crooked Creek) it shouldn’t come
as a surprise that Steuben County has a lot of water. In
fact, about 9 percent of the county’s surface acreage is
Some of the county’s lakes are highly developed,
such as Lake James and Crooked Lake. Crooked Lake
was one of the earliest in the county to be developed for
recreational use. There once were passenger trains that
carried visitors to Crooked Lake and Lake James.
Many of the early cottages on county lakes have
either been converted to year-round use or have been
knocked down and replaced with permanent homes, or
modern second homes.
A study sponsored by the Steuben County
Community Foundation to inventory historic structures in
Steuben County was buoyed upward due to the many
older cottages on some of the lakes.
Lake James’ hilly, wooded shoreline is dotted with
lake cottages and homes. However, about one-fourth of
the natural shoreline of James, in Pokagon State Park,
remains much as it was when it was created by the
glaciers. Pokagon’s shoreline extends to its northern
boundary on Snow Lake. There, a steep, tree-covered hill
drops off sharply to the water’s edge.
Some of the county’s lakes remain natural wonders,
with little encroachment by humans. Those include the
Seven Sisters Lakes, near Pokagon State Park, where a
nature preserve, privately-owned wetlands and Trine
State Recreation Area surround the shoreline. The Seven
Sisters, the largest of which is Gentian Lake, are some of
the most pristine lakes in the Midwest.
Also, there’s Walters Lake, near Fremont. There are
only two access points, and both are privately owned. If
you can get there, Walters Lake produces some of the
best pan fishing around.
Somewhat more accessible is Loon Lake, west of
Angola. Much of Loon Lake is preserved by the Nature
Conservancy, a private, international land conservation
group. Loon Lake is home to many different species of
rare and endangered plants and wildflowers, including
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources
maintains a fish hatchery along the Fawn River in Orland.
There, Indiana Department of Natural Resources Fish and
Wildlife biologists raise fish for stocking in Indiana lakes
and also use the facility as a base from which to conduct
research on fish and fisheries in Indiana.

There are over 100 lakes. There are meadows,
marshes, rolling hills, wetlands, creeks, wooded areas,
ponds and enough flora and fauna to make even the

There are several areas in the county where one can

perhaps, is Pokagon State Park, which lies on the shores
of Lake James and Snow Lake. The park has over 1,200
acres including a nature center to instruct and inform
visitors as well as provide special programs. The park
has expanded to its east with a couple of recent acquisi-
tions made possible in part through ACRES Inc. Funds
are still being raised for the expansion. For information,
contact the park at 833-2012.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has
recently added to its local inventory of properties the
Trine State Recreation Area, which is east across I-69
from Pokagon. This property, some 245 acres, is north
of the Seven Sisters Lakes and the adjoining Wing Haven
Nature Preserve (see below). This property is still
