Frøylandsvatnet is a lake in the municipality of Sandnes in Rogaland county, Norway. The 0.48-square-kilometre (120-acre) lake lies on the south side of the village of Hommersåk, about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) northeast of the city of Sandnes.[1] The lake empties into a small river that runs out of the north end of the lake. The river runs through Hommersåk into an arm of the Gandsfjorden.
