Lakeshore, Canada

Lake St. Clair

Lake St. Clair

It was named after Clare of Assisi, on whose feast day it was navigated and christened by French Catholic explorers in 1679. It is part of the Great Lakes system, and along with the St. Clair River and Detroit River, Lake St. Clair connects Lake Huron with Lake Erie. It encompasses a total surface area of about 430 square miles and average depth of just 11 ft ; to ensure an uninterrupted waterway, government agencies on both sides of the lake have maintained a deep shipping channel through the shallow lake for well over a century.
