Lake Winnibigoshish is a body of water in north central Minnesota, in the Chippewa National Forest. Its name comes from the Ojibwe language Wiinibiigoozhish, meaning "putridly stagnant waters"; the name is related in structure to Lake Winnipeg and to the Algonquian name for Green Bay, to which the Ho-chunk (Winnebago) Nation was named after.

The former Winnibigoshish Township (now unorganized), located on the north shore of Lake Winnibigoshish, in Itasca County, Minnesota was named after this lake.
