The most beautiful and second largest Great Lake

Lake Wisconsin
Wisconsin Citizens for the Renaming of Lake Michigan to Lake Wisconsin

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.”
— Brett Favre

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.

Join us today in renaming the this wonderful and majestic body of water, Lake Wisconsin.

    Michigan has plenty of lakes.

    Hard to think that Green Bay is forced to be a bay of lake Michigan.

    People in Chicago have seen this coming, and in order to stay neutral, they simple refer to it as “the lake.”

  • Adolf S.

    Are you kidding me? You cannot even represent the Big 10 adequately when it matters!

  • Mich I.

    The poison dye, in their cheese, has reached terminus!

  • George B.

    Le’s rename it Lake Michigan West, rename Lake Superior – Lake Michigan North, rename Lake Huron – Lake Michigan East, rename Lake Erie Lake – Michigan South and finally rename Lake Ontario – Lake Michigan Far East

  • Lizzy B.

    We’d happily trade you the U.P. for the Dells and two cows. We’ll even throw in Detroit as a gesture of good will. Oh and, do you have any whine to go with that cheese?

  • Mitch E.

    Aint gonna happen cheeseheads!

  • Rich B.

    You idiots can’t even optimize this site for iPhones, you think you’re worthy of lake naming?

  • Scott W.

    Someone was obviously being a drunken cheesehead when they started this…

  • E G.

    Hands off Lake Michigan! Get your own lake!

  • Daryl M.

    Michigan is an Indian word meaning great water. The state was named for the lake not the other way around. You have your own great water called Lake Winnebago, named for a travel trailor. Lake Michigan forever. And Superior, too!

  • Tom C.

    Pay our taxes, take our roads and take our full-time legislation and you can name it whatever you want.

  • Debbie M.

    Upon reading some of the statements made by Michigan residents, it appears to me that their vulgarity and immaturity does not deserve to have a lake named after them.

  • Connor D.

    We’re taking your lake!

    It should definitely be renamed

  • Christina R.

    I don’t want the name to change. It’s a Great Lake and has been for years!

  • Andrew D.

    I love WI!!!

  • Martha R.

    You understand that the state is named for the lake, not the other way around. Michigami is an Odawa word which means “big water”.

    But good luck!

  • Matthew H.

    It’s about time

  • Ken K.

    Go ahead and take Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. All the copper is mined and Michigan residents don’t want it anymore.

  • John J.

    It honestly makes a lot of sense.

  • Blerim K.

    It’s the right thing to do

  • Jason T.

    It must be done! Let’s face what does Michigan have?

  • Justin F.

    Detroit, need i say more

  • Andrew M.

    Because this is a valid argument amd we at leasr deserve some part of that lake.

    They’ve got 2 other Great Lakes they can call “Michigan.”

  • Matthew T.

    It’s my lake

    This is a waste of time. It will always be Lake MICHIGAN!

    I’m not. Don’t do this.

  • Test T.

    Because I like to.

  • Tonya B.

    It is my feeling that the Greta lakes should be left as is. This lake has always been Lake Michigan and should remain that way.

  • Drew L.

    Well WI has more lakes in it than MN does…

  • Augustine N.

    The Packers (fudge?) need a bigger biday!

  • Ashley E.

    Lake Michigan’s name does not need to be changed. Just keep it the way it is and leave it at that. You don’t see Canada trying to change lake superior or Ohio changing lake Erie

  • Edie P.

    It’s the Great Lakes of Michigan! And should remain this way for the rest of history!

  • Scott A.

    I support this. I am tired of the mitten michiganders stealing all of our glory. We were obviously here first.

  • Dana B.

    WI deserves it’s own lake!

    I live in Michigan

  • Sherry M.

    No way! Leave it as Lake Michigan.

  • Nicholas W.


  • Kelsey B.

    michigan is home of all the Great Lakes. Wisconsin just borders one. It should not be called lake Wisconsin.

  • Rianna S.

    This is my lake my home state needs this

  • Karen S.

    Because I love my state.

  • Mike L.

    I was promised cheese.

  • Ryan C.

  • Kathy G.

    I live in da U.P. and think we should join with Northern Wisconsin to make the Great State of Superior, why not call it Lake Wisconsin!

    This has been Lake Michigan since the beginning of time. Why change it now?

  • Bryce L.

    Wisconsin is awesome

  • Lake M.

    No way..this will never happen! lol

  • Sonya D.

    It needs to be Lake Michigan!!!!

  • Don A.

    I do not stand for the renaming of lake Michigan to lake Wisconsin!.. with that said, when the great state of Wisconsin magically gets 4 of the 5 great lakes around their borders, then I will be more than happy to accept the renaming of lake Michigan, too “lake cheese head” other than that good luck cheeseheads!!

  • Poop J.

    This is a joke duhhh

  • The L.

    Stay away of my lake or else. >:(

  • Jeremy H.

    Wisconsin needs it

  • Interested P.

    I can’t sign this, tho living in Wisconsin 30+ years. Our name is MUDD thanks to the current political situation. We are exporting our crass and lying governor…that is bad enough, with Ryan, Priebus,
    Sensenbrenner…we need to clean up our “house” first….not a joke.

  • Joe M.

    I am a Michigan native and think this is ridiculous to waste your time and money on this. Doesnt your politicans have anything better to do than to worry about changing the name of a lake????

  • Chris W.

    I’m a bawss

  • Marian M.

    Being a Michigan Native this an appauling slap in the face and a waste of taxpayers dollars AND a waste of Government time !!!We can’t even get them to do sensible lawmaking ,why do they have to waste time with frivolous crap like this ???

    The lake is important to Michigan too.
    Get over yourselves.

  • Kelcie H.

    Wisconsin, nuff said. :)

  • Ben P.

  • Ally H.

    wisconsin rules!!!

  • April F.

    April Fools

  • Carol H.

    It’s always been our beloved Lake Michigan. Leave the name as it is.

  • John K.

    We Michiganders loved the lake so much we named our state after it. Not the other way around.

    4 out of 5 Great Lakes prefer Michigan, but if anyone else shares stewardship of Lake Michigan, it’s you Wisconsin. We in the mitten would high five you if the lake wasn’t in the way.

  • Mike W.

    I know, I’m nuts!

  • Jesse K.

    I believe the lake should take on the name of Wisconsin because it’d be more admirized by other states. Everyone knows Wisconsin over Michigan! I think the U.P. should be switched to “The Upper Penninsula of Wisconsin” cause it looks like it would be owned by Wisconsin and it’s an awesome place!

  • Samuel J.

    I am signing the petition because I feel like Wisconsin is a glorious state and we need to be know for something more than our dairy products

  • Lori H.

    Wisconsin is great!

  • Jake K.

    I’m a proud Michigander

  • J T.

    What’s next? WI will aggressively take over the U.P.??

  • Joseph O.

    it’s a part of our country’s history.

  • Jacob N.

    Wisconsin is far better than Michigan

  • Linda G.

    This is crazy – leave well enough alone. This borders more of Michigan than Wisconsin

  • Kaitlyn D.

    It is michigans great lakes wisconsin does not deserve that

  • Mandy C.

    this is ridiculous! NO!

  • Paul L.

    I live in Wisconsin and believe it is our lake.

  • Heather S.

    Due to the downward trend in Michigan many may not visit these lake areas. Fiscal mismanagement, corruption and crime have taken their toll on this area. Why not give it a fresh start with a new name.

  • Jaime V.

    Lake wisconsin

  • Cory A.

    If michigan gets the u.p. via a bridge then wisconsin deserves the lake!

  • April F.

    ha ha very funny

  • Dante P.

    It’s the right thing to do.

  • Tony E.

    Lake Michigan goes other places than Wisconsin. Just leave well enough alone and DONT change the name.

  • Clark G.

    I’m signing this petition because the thought of renaming Lake Michigan is simply preposterous. The Lake was named with the help of our Indian brethren who referred to it as Michi gami – so I see no need to change what has been around for several hundred years!

  • Elizabeth B.

    Lake Wisconsin is the worst!

  • Chad M.

    Because if you don’t like Wisconsin you can geeeeet out!

  • Dorothy M.

    I love Wisconsin, but you can’t rename something just because you feel like it. It’s always been Lake Michigan. “Lake Wisconsin” doesn’t even sound right! Wisconsin isn’t “left with nothing but a bunch of farmland, cows, and cheeseheads” – it’s beautiful, and has a lot to be proud of. Heck, you have Harley Davidson!!! :)

  • Brooks B.

    Vote Against Lake Wisconsin – Lake Wisconsin doesn’t roll off the tongue the same way Lake Michigan does…besides we’ve taken care of the lake for all of these years, how dare Wisconsin try to take our lake! We’ll gladly share as long as we get to keep the name.

  • Kevin B.

    I like water

  • Tawne A.

    I’m signing this petition because I’m sick and tired of everyone always trying to change things! Lake MI is part of our history and our attraction. Illinois touches Lake MI too, but you don’t see them throwing a fit for ownership. Wisconsin has tried to act like MI on many accounts (no, you’re not mitten shaped!) and you need to be original and create something great. Not take something and call it yours.

  • Katelyn M.

    Lake Michigan

  • Donna S.

    I have was born in the U.P. and then lived in Wisconsin for almost 30 yrs. and I think this is ridiculous. Just one more thing to make a big deal over. Leave it alone. Being known as cheeseheads and having the Pack are great claims to fame.

  • Leslie W.

    Why are people putting so much effort into this when there are SO many other issues that our country has. Why change history? By the way, I am a complete Packer fan having lived in Wisconsin for over ten years. But please find something better to try to help our country, we need it so badly.

    Sure. Why not? And let’s change the name of the big lake to the north to ….. Lake Inferior. While we’re at it, how about Canada to French North America. Ohio to Nohio. And Indiana to Outdiana.

  • Meredith D.

    Lake Michigan has been the name of the lake since the beginning. This lake belongs to the state of Michigan and changing the name will only divide the states as rivals.

  • Patrick C.

    Michigan has enough things named after it and we need to throw a bone over to our neighbors of the west. I mean they feel the wrath of her but get very little recognition of putting up with it. Also it’s about time that those cheeseheads assumed some of the responsibility for the sheer amount of tax dollars that go into funding the maintence of this massive body of water! I say this has been a long time coming! #LakeWisconsin

  • Steve K.

    It’s time for a change!

  • Ben C.

    Don’t give them any ideas please!

  • Maggie B.

    I am signing this petition because I am from Wisconsin. Why should Michigan get the lake named after them?? We border the lake just as much.

  • Jessica S.

    I’m from MI and we already have so many of the great lakes why not share with Wisconsin. As long as they leave Superior alone I’m fine. Sharing is caring after all.

  • Robert K.

    I’m signing this petition because Wisconsin is a April fools.(;

  • Jennifer S.

    Because when an argument includes “obvi” and it isn’t in a high school lunchroom, it has to be valid. I appreciate the references in the terms of signing the petition.

    I was wondering what Yoopersteez was gonna do this year for 4/1!

  • Neva B.

    Heck yeahhhhh

  • Stephanie Q.

    I’m a Midwesty girl originally from the UP living Deep In The Heart of Texas and THIS is the most whack thing I’ve ever heard!!! NO WAY WISCO!!!

  • Andrew S.

    867 acres of dunes at Whitefish Dunes State Park? Let me see, that’s not even 2% the size of Sleeping Bear Dunes. But hey, I’m all for it.

  • Byron S.

    I agree, MI already has 3 other great lakes.

  • Nancy S.

    As a native of Wisconsin, I want my state to be know for something other than cheeseheads.

  • Paul W.

    I bet Scott Walker would try pushing this through in hurry.

  • Stephanie L.

    You know what, I’m all for this!
