The Emmuraillé Lake is a body of water crossed in its eastern part by the Petit Saguenay River, in the unorganized territory of Sagard, in the Charlevoix-Est Regional County Municipality of the administrative region of Capitale-Nationale, in Quebec, in Canada.
The "Emmuraillé Lake" is indirectly served by the forest road R064 which passes on the west side and bypasses Lac Pilote.
Forestry is the sector's main economic activity; recreotourism activities, second.
The surface of Lac au Sable is usually frozen from the end of November to the beginning of April, however safe circulation on the ice is generally done from mid-December to the end of March.
