Lake St. Martin is a lake in the Canadian province of Manitoba located in the Interlake Region between Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg.

The Fairford River, the major inflow, flows from Portage Bay in Lake Manitoba through to Lake St. Martin then the Dauphin River continues northeastward from Lake St. Martin into Lake Winnipeg. Water flows are regulated by the Fairford River Control Structure and the Lake St. Martin Emergency Channel.

Settlements on the lake, including the Lake St. Martin First Nation, were flooded and made uninhabitable after the 2011 Assiniboine River flood.
