Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area
By Parks Canada

Imagine a place where wind and waves caress the shores of tranquil sheltered bays and endless rugged coastlines. A place where a myriad of shipwrecks lay strewn on the lake floor silently given testimony to the power of the lake. Storms of Lake Superior are legendary and unforgiving as the Anishinabek people have known for thousands of years as they refer to this place as Gitchi Gumme or "The Big Lake". Lose and find yourself in the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area, a site so vast that once established it will be largest freshwater protected area in the world.
