Did You Know This Michigan Island Is The Biggest In The World?
Michigan has the largest island on the largest lake on the largest island on the largest freshwater lake in the world.
Michigan's Isle Royale, one of the few island national parks in the United States, is nestled in the northwest corner of Lake Superior, encompassing 850 square miles of road-less backcountry and water accessible only by a three-hour ferry ride or seaplane.It's so big it has its own lake, Siskiwit Lake. The lake also has its own island, Ryan Island. That makes Ryan Island the largest island on the largest lake on the largest island on the largest freshwater lake in the world.
My whole life I was under the impression that Copper Harbor was the Northern most tip of Michigan. It turns out that is not true. As you can see in the map below, Island Royale National Park is far closer to Thunder Bay in Canada than Copper Harbor.
