    Lake Michigan-Huron Is s the largest lake by surface area. It also has the longest lake coastline in the world. If Huron and Michigan are considered two lakes, Lake Superior is the largest lake. However, Huron is still has the longest coastline at 6,157 km. The world's smallest geological ocean, the Caspian Sea, at 394,299 km² has a surface area greater than the six largest freshwater lakes combined, and it frequently cited as the world's largest lake.

    I did a bit of a research on it using google.

    For this contest, I researched Crater Lake National Park, in Oregon! I will visit there for a week this summer, Im really excited Very Happy
    Crater Lake is a fantastic place! It is one of the deepest lakes and the water is some of the purest in the world!

    Ok, here some more facts:
    The lake fills a nearly 1,958 foot deep caldera that was formed around by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama!

    While having no indigenous fish population, the lake was stocked from 1888 to 1941 with a variety of fish.
    Several species have formed self sustaining populations. Smile

    The Oregon State Quarter, which was released by the United States Mint in 2005, features an image of Crater Lake on its reverse side!

    Also, Crater Lake is known for the "Old Man of the Lake," a tree that has been bobbing vertically in the lake for more than a century. Due to the cold water of the lake, the tree has been rather well preserved.

    However, on the basis of comparing average depths among the world's deepest lakes, Crater Lake becomes the deepest lake in the Western Hemisphere and the third deepest in the world.

    The caldera rim of Crater Lake ranges in elevation from 7,000 to 8,000 feet.

    This is some of the information that I found out about this awesome lake! Smile
    I drew it in art class at school once, I will try to post the picture soon Smile
    I hope that this is good enough -Beluga Smile

    Edit: Heres the picture Smile

    Lake Michigan-Huron is the largest lake by surface area: 117,350 km². It also has the longest lake coastline in the world: 8,790 km. If Huron and Michigan are considered two lakes, Lake Superior is the largest lake, with 82,414 km². However, Huron is still has the longest coastline at 6,157 km (2980 km excluding the coastlines of its many inner islands). The world's smallest geological ocean, the Caspian Sea, at 394,299 km² has a surface area greater than the six largest freshwater lakes combined, and it frequently cited as the world's largest lake.
    The deepest lake is Lake Baikal in Siberia, with a bottom at 1,637 m. Its mean depth is also the greatest in the world (749 m)
    It is also the world's largest lake by volume (23,600 km³, though smaller than the Caspian Sea at 78,200 km³), and the second longest (about 630 km from tip to tip).
    The longest freshwater lake is Lake Tanganyika, with a length of about 660 km (measured along the lake's center line).
    It is also the second deepest in the world (1,470 m) after lake Baikal.
    The world's oldest lake is Lake Baikal, followed by Lake Tanganyika (Tanzania).
    The world's highest lake is the crater lake of Ojos del Salado, at 6,390 metres (20,965 ft).[9] The Lhagba Pool in Tibet at 6,368 m (20,892 ft) comes second.[10]
    The world's highest commercially navigable lake is Lake Titicaca in Peru and Bolivia at 3,812 m (12,507 ft). It is also the largest freshwater (and second largest overall) lake in South America.
    The world's lowest lake is the Dead Sea, bordering Israel, Jordan at 418 m (1,371 ft) below sea level. It is also one of the lakes with highest salt concentration.
    Lake Huron has the longest lake coastline in the world: about 2980 km, excluding the coastline of its many inner islands.
    The largest island in a freshwater lake is Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron, with a surface area of 2,766 km². Lake Manitou, located on Manitoulin Island, is the largest lake on an island in a freshwater lake.
    The largest lake located on an island is Nettilling Lake on Baffin Island.
    The largest lake in the world that drains naturally in two directions is Wollaston Lake.
    Lake Toba on the island of Sumatra is located in what is probably the largest resurgent caldera on Earth.
    The largest lake located completely within the boundaries of a single city is Lake Wanapitei in the city of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
    Before the current city boundaries came into effect in 2001, this status was held by Lake Ramsey, also in Sudbury.
    Lake Enriquillo in Dominican Republic is the only saltwater lake in the world inhabited by crocodiles

    Lake Titicaca is the highest commercially navigable lake in the world, at 3,812 m (12,507 feet) above sea level. It is also South America's largest freshwater lake, with a surface area of approximately 8372 square kilometers.

    Located in the Altiplano high in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia, at 16°S 69°W, Titicaca has an average depth of between 107 m, and a maximum depth of 281 m. The western part of the lake belongs to the Puno Region of Peru, and the eastern side is located in the Bolivian La Paz Department.
    It's famous because the name is so funny nobody ever forgets it!! cheers jocolor

    Lake Baikal (Russian: о́зеро Байка́л Ozero Baykal, pronounced [ˈozʲɪrə bʌjˈkɑl], Buryat: Байгал нуур Baygal nuur, meaning "the rich lake"[3]) is in southern Siberia in Russia, located between Irkutsk Oblast to the northwest and the Buryat Republic to the southeast, near the city of Irkutsk. It is also known as the "Blue Eye of Siberia". It contains more water than all of the North American Great Lakes combined.[4][5]
    At 1,642 meters (5,390 ft) (Baikal central part 53°14′59″N, 108°05′11″E)[1], Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world,[6] and the largest freshwater lake in the world by volume.[7] However, Lake Baikal contains less than one third the amount of water as the Caspian Sea[citation needed], which is the largest lake in the world. Like Lake Tanganyika, Lake Baikal was formed as an ancient rift valley, having the typical long crescent shape with a surface area of (31,722 km2/12,248 sq mi), less than that of Lake Superior or Lake Victoria. Baikal is home to more than 1,700 species of plants and animals, two thirds of which can be found nowhere else in the world[8] and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.[9] At more than 25 million years old, it is the oldest lake in the world.[7]
    A Russian mini-submarine attempting to set a record for the deepest freshwater dive on July 29, 2008, was originally reported as being successful, but a correction later emerged that reported the MIR I[clarification needed] failed to do so, reaching a depth of only 1,580 meters (5,200 ft).[10]

    The Caspian Sea is the largest enclosed body of water on Earth by area, variously classed as the world's largest lake or a full-fledged sea.[2][3] It has a surface area of 371,000 square kilometers (143,244 sq mi) and a volume of 78,200 cubic kilometers (18,761 cu mi).[4] It is an endorheic basin (it has no outflows), and is bound by northern Iran, southern Russia, western Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, and eastern Azerbaijan. It has a maximum depth of about 1025 meters (3,363 ft).
    It was perceived as an ocean by its ancient coastal inhabitants, presumably because of its saltiness and seeming boundlessness. It has a salinity of approximately 1.2%, about a third the salinity of most seawater. According to Strabo, it is named after an ancient people called Caspians[5] or the ancient sanskrit name Kashyapas[6]. Caspian is called Qazvin قزوين or بحر قزوين on ancient maps. In Iran, it is sometimes referred to as Daryâ-ye Mâzandarân or دریای مازندران.

    The caspian sea is the largest lake im the world. The Baikal Lake is the deepest in the world.

    OK, the great lakes were formed when the age age came down south and dug up huge holes in the earth. Then the ice melted and water filled the lakes. you can remeber there names by saying "HOMES" huron, ontario, michigan, erie {not to be confused with eyre, (pronounce "air") australia's lowest piont of -15 m}, superior. I said
    Before, I wrote:{not to be confused with eyre, (pronounce "air") australia's lowest piont of -15 m}
    because, most people pronounce it "eary". I know about Supieror because i was born there and i can say for a fact that it is too cold to swim and too far to seeland across. These lakes are mostly in USA but partly in canada.

    The 5 Major lakes of America-Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario
    Superior:Lake Superior is the deepest and biggest (in mass) lake in the U.S. At it's deepest point, lake superior is 1302 ft. deep.=O wow...
    Michigan:lake michigan is 923 ft (281m) deep,2nd biggest lake in America!
    Huron:It has a maximum depth of 750 feet and an average depth of 195 feet.Which means that this lake is the 3rd largest =D
    Erie:Average depth of 62 ft with a maximum depth of 210 ft.Which means its 4th largest in America!
    Ontario:Ontario is large,but since its below sea level,its 5th largest,its 801 feet deep below sea level!This is why these lakes are called "The 5 Major Lakes of America" I Hope you like the facts! Smile amd these URLs below are the pics I drew Smile

    The Caspian sea, Because it's the largest lake on earth. Atleast I Think it's a Lake, That's what some people have been saying. Here is some info,

    Caspian Sea (ancient Caspium Mare or Hyrcanium Mare), saltwater lake in southeastern Europe and southwestern Asia is the largest inland body of water in the world. The Caspian Sea is bordered on the west by Azerbaijan and Russia, on the northeast and east by Kazakhstan, on the east by Turkmenistan, and on the south by Iran. It extends about 1210 km (about 750 mi) in a northern and southern direction and about 210 to 436 km (about 130 to 271 mi) in an eastern and western direction. It has an area of 371,000 sq km (143,000 sq mi). The Caspian coastline is irregular, with large gulfs on the east, including Krasnovodsk Gulf and the very shallow Garabogazk Gulf, which acts as an evaporation basin and is the site of a major chemical plant that extracts salts from the deposits.

    Omg that's alot of writing. Sad Hope I Win again, hehe. And it's by ukraine! Very Happy

    Mine is about Crater Lake

    Crater Laker is in Crater Lake, Oregon. It is the most interesting lakes out of the whole world! It is famous for its depht, clarity, and blue color. The lake fills an 4,000 feet crater that was formed about 5,677 B.C. by a collapse of the volcano Mt. Mazama. The lake was first named Deep Blue Lake by a person named John Wesley Hillman. It's name later changed to Lake Majesty, which then was changed to Crater Lake, which is what we know of it today. The rim of crater lake is 7,000 to 8,000 feet. Not only is the lake itself famous, but also it is home to the "Old Man Of the Lake", a tree that has been standing verticly in the lake for more then a century. Crater lake is a great place to visit and camp at. But be careful, there are bears! affraid
    Trust me, i should know about the bears.. my dad and mom almost got attacked by one on there visit to Crater Lake.

    Anyway, hope u enjoyed my facts! And i didn't copy belugaboy... we just happen to have the same lake and the same webpage where we found facts i guess. Oh! And here's is a picture of the real lake... and my drawing of the lake.My drawing isn't that good...lol, but at least i tryed!Thx from Gmailchatter! Again, thats Gmailchatter. Didn't catch that?
