|Location||Pohénégamook, Témiscouata Regional County Municipality, Quebec|
Oriented north-south, the lake is nestled in a valley in the Notre Dame Mountains, part of the Appalachian Range. Route 289 runs along the southern and western shores through the municipality of Pohénégamook - an amalgamation of several villages.
The National Transcontinental Railway constructed its mainline from Winnipeg to Moncton along the western and southern shores in 1912 - today this line forms the mainline of CN Rail between Halifax and Montreal.
The lake is said to hide a monster named Ponik that is alleged to be an enormous water snake that would flip every boat that crossed the lake in order to eat the passengers.
