Riffe Lake, Washington, USA: Riffe Lake Boat Dock

Riffe Lake

(Washington, USA)

11,830 acres

52 miles of shoreline

778 feet above sea level

Riffe Lake by any other name would still be a fantastic recreational spot. The name confusion for this man-made reservoir in the Seattle and Puget Sound region is because since opening in 1968, it has had two name changes. Originally named Mossyrock Lake because it formed behind Mossyrock Dam, the name was changed at one point to Davisson Lake. In 1976, the lake's name was changed to Riffe Lake in ... Read full review

109 acres

3 miles of shoreline

46 feet max. depth

6,181 feet above sea level

Moraine Lake, one of the jewels in Banff National Park's crown, is sometimes dismissively called 'the other lake'. Nothing could be more misleading. Neighbor Lake Louise may get more visitors and more travel industry attention, but Moraine Lake is a star in its own right. Located about ten miles from Lake Louise, Moraine Lake nestles in Banff's spectacular Valley of the Ten Peaks and offers scenery ... Read full review

72,960 acres

709 feet max. depth

585 feet above sea level

Large, scenic and inviting, Lake Timiskaming forms part of the border between Ontario and Quebec. A full 68 miles long, Lake Timiskaming is about 5 miles wide at its widest point. However, that width is deceptive; the lake formed in a rift valley and is more than 700 feet deep in spots. The lake lies in the northern extension of the Ottawa-Bonnechere Graben, which is part of the Saint Lawrence rift ... Read full review
