Taswell is a small community located in Crawford County on State Road 64 in south-central Indiana. Since the 1980s, Taswell's economy has relied heavily on tourism, boating and recreational services, due to its close proximity to Patoka Lake. The lake is the second largest reservoir in Indiana and is spread across Crawford, Dubois and Orange Counties in southern Indiana. Patoka Lake consists of 8,800 acres and is fed by several smaller tributaries of the Patoka River, including Allen Creek, Paint Creek and Ritter Creek. The Patoka Dam is located about 118 miles above the mouth of the river. After the lake was created, several parks and nature preserves were established around it totaling 16,920 acres. The lake and dam is still managed the Army Corps of Engineers and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Patoka Lake is great for fishing and is stocked with bass, bluegill, catfish, redear, crappie and walleye. Boat rentals are available at the lake, as is a large campground, cabins, picnic shelters, hiking and biking trails, an archery range and a disc golf course. Every year the lake association hosts GarDaze, an event bringing in avid fisherman from around the world. The community of Taswell is also near French Lick, the site of a casino featuring Vegas-style gaming, a full-service spa, 3 golf courses and many other attractions.
