Indiana’s deepest, Lake Tippecanoe’s 768 acres is famous for its pristine waters and the amazing housing opportunities that surround its shores. Affectionately known as “Lake Tippy” by locals, Tippecanoe lavishes the good life on those who take advantage of the residential housing spread around its shores.Created by glaciers, the 120 feet depths of Lake Tippecanoe hide a veritable smorgasbord of recreational options. Kayaking, power and sail boating, jet skiing and water skiing are only a small sample of the attractions that continue to entice residents to Kosciusko County, one of Indiana’s real estate hotspots. In fact, Lake Tippecanoe is connected to the Barbee Chain by a stream, the Tippecanoe River, which serves as the lake’s outlet.
Fishers delight in the variety of over 30 kinds of fish, but the best fishing comes from the hungry mouths of bluegill, yellow perch, largemouth bass, redear sunfish, black crappie and northern pike. Many homes have their own piers, but public access is available on Grassy Creek, a tributary that connects the lake to several smaller lakes.
Residents of Lake Tippecanoe take great pride in their lake. In 1944, early residents formed the Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners with primary goals of preserving the beauty and health of the lake, including the prevention of pollution and overcrowding. These efforts and others have culminated to make Lake Tippecanoe a prized part of Indiana’s lake system.
