Loughborough Lake is a lake in Ontario, Canada and is located 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Kingston, Ontario; it is 24 kilometres (15 mi) long and 15 square kilometres (5.8 sq mi) in area, with many small islands, and has over 160 kilometres (99 mi) of shoreline.

In shallow areas of the lake (10 metres (33 ft) and shallower), large mouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike and various other pan fish are found; deeper areas contain largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, lake trout, rainbow trout and pan fish. The lake was once stocked.[citation needed]

The east basin of Loughborough Lake contains several islands, and is shallow compared to the west basin.

The village of Battersea, Ontario is located on the south shore of the lake's east basin.

Davidson's Beach is located on the lower end of the Lake; on its east shoreline.
