We, the citizens of Wisconsin, feel it’s time for the Great Lake of Michigan to be renamed Lake Wisconsin. For too long Michiganders have gloated over Lake Michigan and their pretty sunsets. From now on, we will exclusively refer to it as Lake Wisconsin until every American joins us.
To our west we have the Land of 10,000 Lakes. To our east the so-claimed Great Lakes State. And here we are, left in the middle with nothing but a bunch of farmland, cows, and cheeseheads. It’s time to make a change, this is Lake Wisconsin.
The citizens of Wisconsin have a long and storied history with Lake Wisconsin. Milwaukee resident J. Val Klump was the first person in history to reach the bottom of Lake Wisconsin, which he did in 1985 via a small submarine.
“Wisconsin’s a special place.”

We hope you’ll join us by signing our petition.
Over 12 million people live in the communities surrounding this Great Lake. We would like to highlight some of those communities now, which make up for a people more than 5% of those 12 million people. Wow, that’s amazing! Door County peninsula is a shining example of Wisconsin residents. The county features Whitefish Dunes State Park with over 867 acres of lakeshore dunes and four other stunning Wisconsin State Parks.

Additionally, Wisconsin shares over 495 miles of shoreline with Lake Wisconsin and is home to 3.5 million cows. They need fresh drinking water too. Oh, and we have the Wisconsin Dells, obvi.
“In Wisconsin they have deep-fried cheese curds, which taste like French fries and heaven had a baby.”
