Polk Township is one of eleven townships in Monroe County, Indiana, United States. As of the 2010 census, its population was 360 and it contained 195 housing units. It is one of the least densely populated townships in the state; this is largely because most of the land is occupied by Lake Monroe, the Hoosier National Forest, and seasonal homes and attractions.
