Kannonselkä (also called Kannonjärvi) is a medium-sized lake of Central Finland in the Kymijoki main catchment area. It is in the area of Kannonkoski municipality.[1] The lake is in quite natural condition and there are good possibilities for fishing.[2] There are several archaeological settlement places in Otaniemi on the lake shore.[3]
