Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore: Twelvemile Beach Campground Professional Review and Guide
"The Upper Peninsula is bounded to the north by the lake the French called le lac supérieur. The Ojibwa simply called it kitchi-gami, or “the great lake.” And with his attempt at translating Finnish folk poetry into the American experience, Henry Wordsworth Longfellow called it Big-Sea-Water in The Song of Hiawatha.
Lake Superior, it seems, needs no fancy label. It is enough to behold the lake and simply say, “Wow, that’s a big body of water.” And it is. It is the largest of the Great Lakes in terms of both acreage and depth."
