The Tippecanoe River is a gentle, 225-mile long river in northern Indiana that flows from Big Lake in Noble County to the Wabash River near Battle Ground, about twelve miles northeast of Lafayette. The name "Tippecanoe" comes from a Miami-Illinois word for buffalo fish.
It is considered the river of lakes, as it is fed by 88 natural lakes. It has a drainage area of 1.25 million acres , spanning 14 counties. Very few streams in the upper Midwest can match the number of imperiled species or the overall species diversity that the Tippecanoe River supports. There are also a large number of creeks that flow into it, including Redinger Ditch and Mill Creek.
From Lake Tippecanoe in Kosciusko County, the river flows south and west through the southeast corner of Marshall County, then bends northwest through the northern part of Fulton County and through Pulaski County, from the northeast corner to the south central portion, traversing Tippecanoe River State Park along the way. It then enters White County, where dams form Lake Freeman and Lake Shafer. The river exits Lake Freeman from the south and flows through the west part of Carroll County into Tippecanoe County, where it joins the Wabash River.
