Community Info

Cordry and Sweetwater Lakes are located in the northeast corner of Brown County approximately 12 miles northeast of Nashville and approximately 20 miles from Franklin and 20 miles from Columbus. Centrally located in Indiana, it has easy access to Indianapolis and other metropolitan areas.

The lakes are manmade with 125 ft. dams and 110 ft of water at the dam. Sweetwater Lake is 3 1/2 miles long and 379 acres while Cordry is 2 1/2 miles long and 259 acres. Property owners have use of both lakes regardless of where their property is located. The area is governed by a 7 person board elected by the property owners at an annual election. The board is staggered so it is never a completely new board. Rules and regulations following deed restrictions and covenants are on file for lot owners information. These also follow the restrictions set forth by the zoning board of Brown County. Septic systems are required and are designed and installed under the jurisdiction of the Conservancy District and the Brown County Board of Health. The Conservancy District owns and operates the water system and maintains the roads within the boundary of the Conservancy District. They collect an assessment of $24 to cover the road maintenance. This supplements the taxes collected through Brown County and returned to the District and is determined through a budget submitted to the State each year to determine the rate. The lakes are private to the property owners with boat ID required and beach passes issued to each property owner. If you enjoy fishing, the Cordry/Sweetwater Anglers Club might appeal to you.
