Eagle Creek Airpark and Rick's Boat Yard
Fly under Indianapolis IND airspace to Eagle Creek Airport KEYE on the NW side of Indianapolis. Walk across the street to one of the best restaurants within walking distance of any airport in Indiana. Ricks Boat Yard Restaurant is ON THE WATER with wonderful views and a great menu. Often enjoy live music, Seafood fresh lobster, indoor or patio tables, even free boatrides on the lake on some evenings, courtesy of Rick's Boatyard restaurant. 5.00 Landing fee at airport, but worth it. Sometimes you will be greeted with water on the ramp and a golf cart ride to EYE terminal. Runway is 3/21 orientation and has taxiway. This will be a favorite! - Submitted by Russ Kaspar

9/19/2022 - I have flown to Eagle Creek for lunch at Rick's Boat Yard. The food is excellent and it is worth the trip. It is better to fly VFR as Indy Approach will vector you all over Indiana.

8/25/2021 - Now what would really be a good thing is for EYE and Rick's toeH78 designate a beaching dock, or tie up for seaplanes there, with fuel available from the airport.

7/4/2011 - A flight to Rick's is always a hit with the wife, or friends who are new to flying. I'm always looking for similar places that are a little further from home base.
