The longest un-dammed river in the contiguous USA is the Yellowstone River; it is 692 miles long. Rivers provide drinking water, irrigation water, transportation, electrical power, drainage, food, and recreation.
While some of the USA rivers and lakes serve as vital waterways for inland navigation others are useful sources of irrigation and power generation. House boats particularly the cruising type such as Gibson, Holiday Mansion, Harbor Master and others are designed for cruising on the lakes and rivers of mid America. This kind of erosion can even form canyons, like the Grand Canyon, and waterfalls, like Niagara Falls. Besides the USA rivers, the USA river map also shows the various lakes, streams and other water bodies in the USA.

The whole drainage topography of the USA may be divided into two main subsystems, namely the Eastern systems and the Pacific systems. Located in east-central North America, the Great Lakes form the largest group of fresh water lakes in the world covering a total area of 244,106 square km. The longest river in the USA is the Missouri River; it is a tributary of the Mississippi River and is 2,540 miles long.
Apart from being the site for large population concentrations and industrial activities, the Great Lakes also handle the highest volume of fresh water shipping tonnage in the world. For certain cities like New Orleans, river basins usher in growth and prosperity for the city and its people.
We have owned 4 cruisers and 7 houseboats over the years, have cruised extensively, and lived aboard for 7 years. The lake system of the US comprises Great Lakes of Lake Superior, Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Ontario and Lake Michigan, the first four of which are shared with Canada.


The Tennessee River is my favorite but many of the river systems are interconnected and offer a lifetime of cruising pleasure. Of the five Great Lakes, only Lake Michigan falls entirely within the territory of the United States with the remaining four being shared with Canada.
And 5% of the time you won't want to be there, and the last 5% of the time you have no business being out there.
