Lake Champlain is NOT a Great Lake...today. But very briefly in 1998, it was named the sixth Great Lake.

Vermont does not border a Great Lake, although it did when Lake Champlain was proclaimed the sixth one.

Hydrologically speaking, the joining of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron by the Straits of Mackinac classifies them as a single lake. If they were geographically accepted as such, they'd be the largest freshwater lake on Earth by surface area, eclipsing the gargantuan Lake Superior.
