Cross Lake, Manitoba


Cross Lake, Manitoba

Cross Lake is the name of two closely related, adjoining but independent communities in the Canadian Province of Manitoba. One of the Cross Lakes is the Cross Lake Indian Reserve (Pimicikamak Cree) where the main urban area is called Cross Lake. The other Cross Lake is on nearby provincial Crown land.

The communities are located about 520 kilometres by air north of Winnipeg, and 120 kilometres by air south of Thompson. They are situated on the shores of the Nelson River where the river enters Cross Lake.

An all-weather road, PR 374, connects the communities to PR 373 via the Kichi Sipi Bridge.

The lake of Cross Lake is a lake in Manitoba, Canada on the Nelson River north of Lake Winnipeg. It is long and narrow and extends at least 40 miles east-northeast. The Nelson enters and leaves on the west side. The Minago River enters on the west. From the Minago a portage led to Moose Lake and the Saskatchewan River. On the east side a portage led to the Carrot River and Oxford Lake on the Hayes River.
