Snagov (Romanian: Lacul Snagov) is a lake in Snagov commune, about 25–30 km north of Bucharest, Romania. It has a surface of only 5.75 km², but due to its elongated shape it stretches for about 12 km, northeast to southwest.
Lake Snagov as well as the nearby Snagov forest is a protected natural area.
