Lake Lucille is a 350-acre (1.4 km2) lake within the municipal limits of Wasilla, Alaska, located at 61°34′N 149°28′W / 61.567°N 149.467°W / 61.567; -149.467.[1]

Most of the lake shoreline is private property (i.e., not incorporated into the City of Wasilla), and many residents have docks for swimming, boating, or docking floatplanes. There is also a city park with a campground and boat launch.

Lake Lucille and Wasilla Lake are both immediately adjacent to the Parks Highway, the main route for travel between Fairbanks and Anchorage.

The private home of former Governor Sarah Palin overlooks Lake Lucille, and she gave her July 2009 resignation speech at its bank.[2]
