Lake Wickenden is the largest lake on Anticosti Island in the Saint Lawrence River, Quebec, Canada. Glacially formed, it is drained by the Jupiter River. Together with the surrounding 69,111 hectares it was designated by WCPA as a protected area on 1 January 1993.[1]

The lake was named after Henri Robert Wickenden who worked on Anticosti Island for the Wayagamack Paper Corporation in the 1920s.
