Sturgeon Lake is northwest of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada. The bordering Sturgeon Lake First Nation takes its name from the lake. The Sturgeon River flows out of the lake eventually joining the North Saskatchewan River a short distance west of Prince Albert.

The lake hosts a regional park with camping and swimming. It is a small, narrow body of water situated in the transition zone between the aspen parkland and boreal forest biomes. Sturgeon Lake is home to several species of fish including Lake Whitefish, Northern Pike, Yellow perch and Walleye. While not a deep lake, it still suffices for some watersports.
