Store Urevatn is a lake in the municipality of Bykle in Aust-Agder county, Norway. The water leaving this lake high up in the Setesdalsheiene mountains has a dam on it which leads to a canal that brings the out-flowing water to the nearby Vatndalsvatnet lake.[1]

The lake has large populations of brook trout and brown trout, which makes the lake popular with fishermen.
