Rosskreppfjorden is a lake on the border between the municipalities of Valle (in Aust-Agder county) and Sirdal (in Vest-Agder county), Norway. The lake is part of the Kvina river system and has a hydroelectric power plant in a dam on the south end of the lake. The lake has an area of 29.51 square kilometres (11.39 sq mi) and sits at an elevation of about 929 to 890 metres (3,048 to 2,920 ft) above sea level.

The lake flows south into the Øyarvatnet lake. Rosskreppfjorden is located about 21 kilometres (13 mi) southwest of the village of Valle. The lakes Kolsvatnet and Botnsvatnet are located just to the northeast of Rosskreppfjorden, and the mountain Urddalsknuten is just to the north of the lake. [1]
