Robinson is a railway point and unincorporated place just west of an arm of Marchington Lake on the Sturgeon River in Unorganized Kenora District in northwestern Ontario, Canada.[1]

It lies on the Canadian National Railway transcontinental main line,[2] between Ghost River to the west and Ycliff to the east, has a passing track and is passed but not served by Via Rail transcontinental Canadian trains. There is also a siding east of the lake and river that leads from the main line to the shore.
