Lake-Tippecanoe is a large lake in Kosciusko County in north-central Indiana. It's a glacially-created lake and the deepest natural lake in the state. It's located about two miles west of the town of North Webster. There is a small unincorporated community called Oswego located near the northwestern shore of Lake Tippecanoe. The lake is used mostly for recreational purposes such as fishing, boating and water skiing and is surrounded by mostly expensive residential housing. A prominent historical location is situated on the southeast shore of the lake - the Tippy Dance Hall. Once a traditional concert hall which hosted acts such as Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong, Tippy Dance Hall is now a teen dance club with Saturday night dances held from Memorial Day to just after Labor day. Several marinas and restaurants are located around Tippecanoe Lake. In addition, the Tippecanoe Lake Country Club is a private club and the lake's biggest attraction. From 1959 through the early 1960s, the country club hosted LPGA tournaments. Other nearby attractions include Bel Rohr Park, Forest Glen, Kalorama Park and Mineral Springs on the lake's southeast shore. There are several public access points to Tippecanoe Lake situated around the shoreline.

Lake Tippecanoe Weather & Climate

Northwest Indiana has a four-season climate typical of most of the Midwest, with a few exceptions due to its proximity to Lake Michigan. Cold air passing over the warmer lake water induces precipitation in the lee of Lake Michigan in autumn and winter. As a result of this phenomena, heavy winter precipitation, especially snowfall, can extend eastward from Gary inland to as far as Elkhart. Lake-related snowfall and cloudiness can extend to central Indiana in winter, driven by strong northwesterly winds. In the spring, daily maximum temperatures decrease northward in northern Indiana because of the cooling effect of the Lake. Average daily minimum temperatures in autumn are higher in northwestern Indiana near the warmer lake surface than farther south.
