This isolated remote Northwestern Ontario community is accessible only by air or ice road. During the coldest months the road extends from Windigo Lake north through Muskrat Dam. The community is located on Lake Michikan. Three settlements make up the Bearskin Lake First Nation. The main village is situated on the west shore of the lake and all three communities are tied to one another by all weather gravel roads.
