Long Description:
Le nom viendrait du mot abénaquis Etemânkiaks qui désignait une tribu d'Abénaquis vivant à Etemânki, autrement dit, à l'endroit où il y a beaucoup d'orignaux et de caribous dont les peaux font de très bonnes raquettes. Le lac a une longueur de 5 kilomètres, une largeur de 0.5 km, une profondeur de 31 mètres et une superficie de 2.5 kilomètre carrés. Il se déverse dans la rivière Etchemin qui se décharge dans le fleuve St-Laurent. Les coordonnées sont celles de WMF7TQ, soit la plage de l'Éco-parc.
