Bàu Tró (Bàu in Vietnamese dialect means pond) is a lake in Đồng Hới city, Quảng Bình Province, Vietnam. This lake is an important fresh water supply for more than 130,000 inhabitants of Đồng Hới. Bàu Tró is better known for archaeological findings by French archaeologists during French Indochina periods.
