Scenic woodlands teeming with wild flora and fauna surround the 109-acre Griffy Lake at this 1,200 acre nature preserve. Swimming is prohibited. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has stocked the lake with bluegill, redear sunfish, largemouth bass, channel catfish, and crappie. A valid Indiana fishing license is required for fishing at Griffy Lake.

The Griffy Lake boathouse is closed for the 2019 boating season. The lake remains open daily to private boats.
