Cranberry Portage is located 48km south of Flin Flon, and 695 km north-west of Winnipeg, Manitoba. It is situated along the southern shores of Lake Athapapuskow, surrounded by lakes, rivers and streams in the western portion of the Grass River Provincial Park .
 Prior to 1928, it was little more than a portage route used by fur traders and First Nations people, known for its abundant beautiful lakes with excellent fishing and scenic landscapes. Cranberry Portage was an important trade route of the Cree and Assiniboin peoples during the fur trade, its location used as a campsite and portage between Grassy River at the head of a number of well-used routes from Hudson Bay and Lake Athapapauskow, which connects to the Saskatchewan River system leading through the prairies to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
The area is known for trophy fishing of northern pike, walleye, lake trout, rainbow and brook trout, white fish and tubilee.
