Relatively deep throughout its length, Lake Wawasee is in the heart of pontoon boat country, being within a couple of hours of many of the industryÃ¢ÂÂs major pontoon boat builders. Geographically speaking itÃ¢ÂÂs about an hour northwest of Fort Wayne, IN, and an hour southeast of South Bend, IN. Though it is relatively open to wind from the northwest and southeast, its openness makes it a great watersports lake, providing plenty of room for tricks, turns, and long runs. Anglers will appreciate the largemouth and smallmouth bass fisheries here. One need only have a look off the end of a dock to see feisty fish swimming around in the clear water. Oakwood Resort is one of the biggest on the lake and a center of activity during the season. You could also spend an entire day just cruising around the shoreline and checking out the beautiful homes ashore.
