La Poudre Pass Lake (el. 3101 m./10,175 ft.) is a high lakelet located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Colorado in the United States.

The lake is located within Rocky Mountain National Park, generally in La Poudre Pass, just south of the Continental Divide. It often resembles a swamp more than a lake, depending upon the season. The lake is notable for being the recognized source of the Colorado River. It can be reached on foot via La Poudre Pass.
