River Summary: The Tippecanoe River is a 225-mile-long river that flows through northern Indiana, originating from the wetlands in Tippecanoe Lake. The river has a rich history, playing a significant role in transportation, trade, and the fur trapping industry during the early 19th century. It is also known for its connection to the famous Battle of Tippecanoe, fought between the Shawnee and US forces in 1811. The river flows through several reservoirs, including the Norway, Oakdale, Winona, and Dewart Lake reservoirs, which are used for flood control, water supply, and recreational activities such as boating, fishing, and camping. The Tippecanoe River is also critical for agriculture, supplying water for crop irrigation in the surrounding areas. The river is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, providing habitat for various species of fish, birds, and mammals.
