The Largest Body of Fresh Water

The Question:

Could you tell me what the largest body of fresh water is in the world?

The largest freshwater lake in the world is Lake Superior in Michigan, which has an area of 31,820 square miles.

But that fact is due to a historical inaccuracy regarding Lake Superior's neighbors-Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Read more about the controversy in our feature, "Michigan and Huron: One Lake or Two?."
