Svorksjøen is a lake on the border of the municipalities of Melhus, Meldal and Orkdal in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The lake lies about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) east of the village of Svorkmo in Orkdal.[1]

The water flows out of the lake into the river Svorka which in turn flows into the Orkla River.
