The Barbee Lakes consist of 7 interconnected, natural lakes in northeastern Indiana’s Kosciusko County. The names of these lakes are Big Barbee Lake, Little Barbee Lake, Kuhn Lake, Irish Lake, Sawmill Lake, Sechrist Lake, and Banning Lake. The lakes have a combined surface area of 855 acres and were formed by retreating glaciers. All 7 of the lakes are stocked with bluegill, largemouth bass, yellow perch, muskie, catfish, and crappies. This makes these lakes prime fishing locations.
Kuhn Lake is the third largest of the seven lakes, with an average depth of 7.9 ft. and a surface area of 174 acres. The lake has a speed limit of 10 mph at all times making it ideal for fishing and non-powered boating. The lake is located 40 miles from Fort Wayne, Indiana, making it close to Parkview Medical Center, and the Fort Wayne International Airport. The lake is lined with cottages and homes, making it a great place to live if you are looking for a lakeside view from your home. Homes on this lake are a part of the Wawasee School District, including North Webster Elementary, Wawasee Middle School, and Wawasee High School.
