Lake Huron is the fifth largest freshwater lake in the world. Since Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are connected by the Straits of Mackinac, they are considered one lake hydrologically. Including the shoreline of its 30,000 islands, Lake Huron’s shoreline is the longest of the Great Lakes and home to the largest freshwater island, Manitoulin Island.
