Usually by the end of June you can swim...heck, it's downright WARM sometimes in August...but then you'll get a big storm that'll flip the lake and bring the cold water up...it's best to test it before jumping in!

For the past two years we have boated and gone swimming in Lake Superior. The water was in the low 70's up there. That was in the Munising/Grand Marais area in July. The air temp was 100+/-. Figure that one out! Normaly it never gets above 80 up there.
