Mariana Lake is an unincorporated community in northern Alberta within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, located on Highway 63, 101 kilometres (63 mi) southwest of Fort McMurray.

This business provided the only fuel, food, and washrooms between Wandering River and Fort McMurray along Highway 63. In September 2008, it was announced that the government of Alberta would be purchasing the land that the store was on to make way for the twinning of Highway 63.[1] The store closed for the last time on September 30.[2]
