Lake View is an unincorporated community in Douglas County, Kansas located 1 mile north of Lawrence. Lake View was established in 1892 as a lake side resort and was in use until the 1930s. The Lake View club continues to maintain the oxbow lake.

A post office was opened in Lake View (but spelled Lakeview) in 1898, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1914.[2]

Lake View was a station on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.[3]
