Laguna Lake is a natural intermittent lake 0.5 miles (1 km) wide and 2 miles (3 km) long, straddling the Sonoma-Marin county line in northern California, United States.[1] It is the source of Chileno Creek which flows 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) west to Walker Creek.[3]

It was included in the Rancho Laguna de San Antonio Mexican land grant,[4] which was given to Bartolomé Bojorquez in 1845.[5]
