Lake Daniell is a lake in the West Coast Region of the South Island of New Zealand. Until 2008 the lake was officially named as Lake Daniells.[1]

It is drained by Frazer Stream which in turn feeds into the Alfred River and is surrounded by old growth beech forest. A tramping track leads to the lake and an adjacent hut, the Manson-Nicholls Memorial Hut.[2]

In 2002 there was a search in the area for a missing tramper who was part of a group staying at the lake. The tramper, a 14-year-old male, was found dead next to the Alfred River.[3]
