Huron Ontario Michigan Erie Superior
The five largest lakes in the USA also known as the Great Lakes are Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. All the lakes are fresh water bodies and are situated in the north-eastern part of the United States along the US-Canada border. The Great Lakes also called inland seas, taken together have a combined surface area of 95,000 sq mi (246, 050 sq km) and comprise about 25% of the World's freshwater reserves. Lake Superior is not only the largest amongst them but also the largest freshwater lake in the World in terms of surface area (31,700 sq mi, 82,100 sq km).
The St. Lawrence sea way connecting the Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean is one of the largest of its kind and has resulted in large-scale trade activities in the region, with the cities of Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago being the prominent centers on the US coast while Toronto and Montreal being the chief ports along the Canadian border. The area is a major tourist destination where one can go swimming, boating and fishing; enjoy the natural beauty, visit the numerous parks and famous lighthouses of bygone days or just relax on the beaches; in fact lakeside towns like South Haven in Michigan are ideal places to spend your summer holidays USA style.
What is the deepest lake in the United States? The deepest lake in the U.S. Is Oregon's Crater Lake. Crater Lake lies within the collapsed crater of an ancient volcano named Mount Mazama and is 1,932 feet deep (589 meters). So HA to everyone who got the question wrong
Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Most people consider these two Great Lakes of the United States to be separate lakes, they are actually a single, joined body of water. At over 45,00 square miles combined, they make up one of the largest single lakes in the world. Witch Lake Superior is 31,000 square miles in size. So I guess some people have there own opinion on this but in my opinion I think Lake Michigan is the biggest.

The Great Lakes are not "inland" lakes. Inland means completely inside the borders of the US. Some of the biggest lakes in the US are man-made (made by damming river). If you want the biggest natural lakes they are (in sq mi): Salt Lake-1700, Iliamna-1012, Okeechobee-730, Pontchartrain-631, Becharof-453
