It is located about four miles north of Cass Lake. This LLR settlement is located very near Mission Lakes southern shores. Since this settlement is not a cdp, city, town, or village i thought i name it after that lake it is situated just south and east of. That's Mission Lake. In Ojibway, South Mission Lake is pronounced as Shaw-an I-nen Ga-miiz. It is located within Ten Lake Township which has a population of 1,026 according to a 2010 census. Indians make up 62% of it's population but 64% when including Mexicans and mixed bloods. It is made up of two clusters of housing units. It has an elevation of 1,345 feet above sea level. There are about 20 to 25 housing units in this LLR settlement. One cluster of housing units is located a little east of a small lake known as Mission Lake and just north of another cluster of housing units. That cluster of housing units located a little east of Mission Lake, is located along Mission Rd SE. It has around 10 housing units. Around half are mobile homes. That other cluster of housing units is further down that same road (Mission Road SE) and are located along Osprey Lane SE. There are around 12 housing units located there. I don't know this LLR settlement's average household size but Chippewa settlements tend to have average household sizes higher than that of whites. It could be between 3.5 and 5.0 persons per housing unit. Population of South Mission Lake is likely between 50 and 75.
