Yes, they do. There are wetlands in enclosed bay areas as well as along the shorelines. The 4 types of wetlands in the Great Lakes region are marshes, bogs, swamps and fens, each with their own characteristics, wildlife and vegetation. Unfortunately, there is a familiar story here: more than 2/3 of the wetlands have been filled in or drained for different reasons.
This website has a nice description of the Great Lakes wetlands: http://web1.msue.msu.edu/iosco/wetlandshome.htm
