    Here is a map... http://geology.com/records/largest-lake.shtml

    Measured by surface or volume? There is a difference.

    The salty Caspian Sea is the world's largest "land-locked body of water."

    Lake Baikal is the world's largest "freshwater lake" in terms of volume.

    The salty Caspian Sea has the "greatest surface" area of any lake at 143,200 square miles (370,886 square kilometers).

    Lake Superior, on the United States/Canada border is the freshwater lake with the "greatest surface" area at 31,700 square miles (82,103 square kilometers).

    ***The largest lake in the "United States" is Lake Superior.,

    Lake Superior is the biggest fresh water lake in the world and really freaking cold. I went in a 100 degree day and dam near froze in about 5 minutes.

    Lake Titicaca - jk, I just like to say Titicaca.

    Actually, the biggest lake in the world is the Caspian Sea, which is not really a sea.

    Lake Baikal is the world's largest freshwater lake.

    After some research and process of elimination I have found that Lake Baikal, in South central Siberia, is the biggest lake in the world.

    The salty Caspian Sea (north of Iran) is the world's largest land-locked body of water. It contains approximately 18,900 cubic miles of water (78,700 cubic kilometers).

    Lake Baikal (in Russia, just north of Mongolia) is the world's largest freshwater lake in terms of volume. It contains about 5521 cubic miles of water (23,000 cubic kilometers), or approximately 20% of Earth's fresh surface water. This is a volume of water approximately equivalent to all five of the North American Great Lakes combined.

    The salty Caspian Sea has the greatest surface area of any lake at 143,200 square miles (370,886 square kilometers). Lake Superior, on the United States/Canada border is the freshwater lake with the greatest surface area at 31,700 square miles (82,103 square kilometers).
