About Tippecanoe (Tippy) Lake & Finger Lakes
Lake Tippecanoe is located in the town of Leesburg, Indiana, and is the deepest natural lake in Indiana. Famous for its pristine waters and amazing housing opportunities, Tippecanoe is connected to James Lakes (known as Little Tippy) and seven smaller lakes known as the Barbee Chain of Lakes. Locals affectionately refer to the lake as “Lake Tippy” and enjoy living the good life around the beautiful shore line.
This glacially created lake spans more than 850 acres and has a depth of over 120+ feet, making it the perfect place for all kinds of recreational activities. Spend the day kayaking, canoeing, power or sail boating, jet skiing, water skiing, or fishing. Anglers will find close to 25 kinds of fish living in the lake, including bluegill, yellow perch, largemouth bass, redear sunfish, black crappie, and northern pike. Or simply hang out on the sandbar located on Little Tippy Lake.
Surrounded by high-end residences, all of the homes have their own piers. Public access is available at several points around the lake including Patona Bay Marina and Resort, and Tippecanoe Boat Co Inc. A tributary connects Tippecanoe to several smaller lakes, including Sawmill, Sechrist, Banning, Irish, Little Barbee, Big Barbee, and Kuhn lakes. Tippecanoe is directly connected to Lake James and Oswego Lake, with Stanton and Shoe Lakes located close by.
Numerous parks are scattered around its shore as well as the Edmund and Virginia Ball Nature Preserve—an undeveloped wetland area and haven for wildlife and birds known as “The Flats." Resort-like living can be found in all directions, with golf courses, marinas, yacht clubs integrated into the stunning environment.
One of Lake Tippy’s largest attractions is the Tippecanoe Lake Country Club, which provides golf, tennis, swimming, boating, and a fireworks display every 4th of July.
