Webb Lake is a lake in the town of Weld in Franklin County, Maine.

Webb Lake is publicly accessible via a boat launch in Mount Blue State Park and has several fish species, including brook trout.[2] The lake's principal fisheries are brown trout, smallmouth bass, white perch, and chain pickerel.[3] Water quality is marginal for coldwater fish due to warm temperatures and low dissolved oxygen

Lake Webb is home to Camp Kawanhee for Boys and the The Kawanhee Inn.[4][5]
