There are many stories related to Lapinkaivo, but the body of water was created when a block broke off from the ice sheet and melted, forming a kettle hole. There have sometimes been attempts to measure its depth, but without success.
Ancient Finns considered Lapinkaivo to be the dwelling of a water spirit. The rocky Lapinharju ridge to the west of Lapinkaivo is one of the highest peaks of the Pohjankangas formation, reaching a height of over 190 metres.
The area is part of the Kauhaneva-Pohjankangas National Park.
