I'm suggesting a merge with Kettlehole. The two articles seem to be about the same glacial feature. The other article seems to be better than this one, but the name "Kettle(geology)" seems to be more appropriate. -Freekee 04:08, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Kettle Point[edit]

This article makes reference to Kettle Point Indian Reservation, and suggests that Kettle Point is named such because of it's "kettle lakes."

Kettle Point is actually named after its kettle concretions, also known as "cannonball concretions." They are almost perfectly spherical mineral deposits embedded in the shale.

In any case, Kettle point doesn't have any lakes that I can think of, other than the Great Lake that it is situated on (Lake Huron). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 06:08, 12 January 2007 (UTC).

Fish Lake is probably not a kettle lake[edit]

This article states that Fish Lake, near Lake Whenachee in Washington state is the largest kettle lake in the United States. It is the opinion of myself and other glaciologist at the Universtiy of Washington that Fish Lake is NOT a kettle lake. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:27, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
