Samsjøen is a lake on the border of the municipalities of Midtre Gauldal and Melhus in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. Most of the lake lies in Midtre Gauldal, about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) north of the village of Singsås. The lake has a dam at the northwest end, which is used for hydroelectric power production. The water flows out of the lake and into the Lundesokna river which flows into the Gaula River.[1]
