Lake Michigan, the second largest of the Great Lakes, is the only Great Lake entirely within the borders of the United States. Its name is derived from the Indian words “Michi-gama” meaning “large lake”. And it is large. It has a surface area of 22,300 square miles, making it the largest freshwater lake in the U.S. and the 5th largest lake in the world
