Discover Great Lakes - Lake Superior

Located above Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world.

‘Superior’ describes not only its size and volume, but also its setting. The Ojibwe called it Kitchigami, meaning “great lake.” In the 1600s it was called Le Lac Superior, or “upper lake,” by the French missionaries, denoting its location at the top of the Great Lakes region.
