Hatchet Lake is a remote lake in north-eastern Saskatchewan, Canada north of Wollaston Lake. From Wollaston Lake the Fond du Lac River flows through Hatchet Lake and Black Lake on its way to Lake Athabasca.[1][2]

In 1963 the Hatchet Lake Lodge was constructed on Sandy Island (58°38′30″N 103°34′36″W / 58.64167°N 103.57667°W / 58.64167; -103.57667), one of the islands near the eastern shore of Hatchet Lake.[3] Hatchet Lake Lodge is a fly-in fishing lodge.

The lake is served by the Hatchet Lake Airport and Hatchet Lake Water Aerodrome, both operated by the Hatchet Lake Lodge.
