  • Lake Superior, which is the worlds largest freshwater lake, is sandwiched between the USA and Canada and has a surface area of a little over 30,000 square miles. It is filled by the discharge of 200 rivers and is not tidal, however storms during Autumn and Winter can generate ferocious waves which are gradually eroding the lakes shore, therefore the lake is very slowly growing in size.
  • There is nothing I can say that would adequately describe why Lake Superior (& the Chequamegon Bay) get five stars. The cool, clear water. The beautiful sunrises & sunsets. The solitude. Its power. It just does.
  • The world's largest freshwater lake. What else is there to say :)!.?? Superior is scenic and varied in shoreline environments. It has beaches, cliffs, bays, islands, and fun cities to explore. Superior has super clean, clear, and cold water.
  • Vast as the air around us. Superior. Deep as deep can get. Superior. Blue as the blood in our veins. Superior takes the ribbon for the number 1 water park amidst the ginormous watersytem of our great lake extravaganza.
  • Water is cold as hell all year long, some cool spots if you know where to find them. Grab a backpack, bring lunch, and enjoy the beaches!
