I’m sure you’ve heard of The Bermuda Triangle, but did you know that Michigan has its own mysterious triangle in water? The Michigan Triangle is a famous, triangular part of Lake Michigan that has gotten a reputation for its sinking ships, disappearing crews and lost aircrafts.

According to, the Michigan Triangle is home to a bunch of mysteries, much like the famed Bermuda Triangle. “The Bermuda Triangle has cemented its status as one of the most mysterious places on Earth. Boats and planes have disappeared mysteriously from this region, and other pilots and boat captains have reported strange, unusual occurrences in the triangular area off the coast of Bermuda. But did you know that the Great Lakes are also home to a curious and puzzling patch of water in Lake Michigan that has also been said to lure ships and planes to a watery demise? It is known as The Lake Michigan Triangle,” notes.

There is so much more to this mysterious area, including UFO sightings. What freaks me out is that some of the Michigan Triangle is located by my uncle’s home off Lake Michigan. The next time I go there, I’ll have to remember not to go too far into the lake! Read on for a few things you didn’t know about the Michigan Triangle.
