Named an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society in 2005, the entire Gibson property consists of about 6,000 acres of reservoir, ponds, and wetlands. Gibson Lake itself is a 3,000-acre cooling reservoir with a surrounding levee and a 2-mile-long breakwater down the center. Because the warm water discharge keeps the lake from freezing in the winter, it often accumulates thousands of ducks and geese when the local lakes freeze. Located near the Wabash River on IN S.R. 64 west of Princeton, the habitat features a 160-acre wetland wildlife viewing area, a photographic blind, and two hiking trails near the Duke Energy main entrance.
The Community Center may be rented for reunions, etc. and also has a playground located behind the Center. For information, call 812-784-4500.
