The Little Red River Cree Nation is home to over 3,000 people. Located 90 minutes east of High Level, Little Red River Cree is comprised of three communities: Fox Lake (where the majority of the population resides, but has no year round road access), John D’or Prairie (the administrative centre), and Garden River in Wood Buffalo National Park.

Two on-reserve stores, a fly-in fishing resort, building supply stories, an RCMP detachment, Little Red Air Service, a forest fire fighting company, and a forestry holding company are some of the enterprises at work here. The many historical sites include Little Red River, a traditional meeting place which became a Hudson Bay outpost site and is now a pilgrimage site.
