Indian Lake is a reservoir in Marion County in central Indiana in the United States. It is approximately 5 miles (8 km) northeast of Indianapolis. It was created in 1929 by damming Indian Creek, a tributary to Fall Creek.

Prior to the creation of Geist Reservoir in 1943 and Eagle Creek Reservoir in 1967, Indian Lake was the largest body of water in central Indiana..
