Lake Skegemog (also known as Skegemog Lake, and rarely Round Lake -its former name-) is a Northern Michigan lake located on the border of three counties, Antrim County, Michigan, Grand Traverse County, Michigan, and Kalkaska County, Michigan, with a surface area of 2,561 acres (10 km2). The Lake is attached to Elk Lake and is considered to be part of the Northwest Michigan Chain O'Lakes. The lake is well known for its nature and beauty, along with its fishing.

The Torch River brings the inflow of water in from Torch Lake. From Lake Skegemog the water flows into Elk Lake, which then enters Lake Michigan in Grand Traverse Bay.

The Lake contains many stumps and logs in it which provides a nice living area for many species of fish. In addition, much of the surrounding land around the Lake is covered in a swamp.
