Rotopōhueroa / Lake Constance is an alpine lake in the South Island of New Zealand.

It lies within the borders of the Nelson Lakes National Park. The lake is drained via an underground river into Rotomairewhenua / Blue Lake.

In August 2014, the official name for Lake Constance was altered to Rotopōhueroa / Lake Constance, following the Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō Treaty of Waitangi settlement with the Crown.[1]
