Lake Superior certainly lives up to its name. At 31,700 square miles and with cold waters reaching depths greater than 1,300 feet, North America’s northernmost lake is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area and the third largest by volume. Ten percent of the world’s surface fresh water is in this lake.
