Swim in Lake Superior
Swim in Lake Superior

In mid-August surface water temps hit the annual high of about 63° F / 17° C. This is as good as it is going to get, so if you want to swim in the world’s largest freshwater lake, I suggest now. Bring a thick towel, though. And maybe a fleece jacket. Shore temps average 71-76°.

Here’s a list of beaches and public access spots to Lake Superior
