Locals are said to talk about a creature they’ve name Wippi that inhabits the lake, and several claim to have seen it. Massawippi is the third lake in the area said to have an unknown creature or monster inhabiting it.(

It would be thought that there would be local legends from the indigenous people , even under it’s old name, about a monster, but I have been unable to find any.
