Michikan Lake is a lake in Kenora District in northwestern Ontario, Canada. It is in the Hudson Bay drainage basin.

The main inflow is an unnamed river at the west. A secondary inflow is an unnamed river at the north. The major outflow, at the southeast, is an unnamed channel to the Severn River, which flows to Hudson Bay.

The lake is the home of the Bearskin Lake First Nation main settlements, which relocated from Bearskin Lake 50 kilometres (31 mi) to the southwest in the 1930s, and is partly encompassed by their Bearskin Lake Indian Reserve.
