Kilefjorden is a lake in the municipalities of Evje og Hornnes and Iveland in Aust-Agder county and Vennesla in Vest-Agder county, Norway. The lake is part of the Otra river and was home to the steamship Bjoren from 1866–1896 when it was moved to the Byglandsfjorden.

The lake is located about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) west of the village of Birketveit in Iveland, about 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) north of the village of Hægeland, and about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) south of the village of Hornnes.[1]
