Våvatnet is a lake on the border of the municipalities of Snillfjord and Orkdal in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway.[1] The lake was dammed in 1910 and is used as the main reservoir for the municipality of Orkdal. The water flows into the lake Songsjøen and then into the lake Gagnåsvatnet.

The lake is about 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) south of Krokstadøra and 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) southeast of Ytre Snillfjord, both in Snillfjord, and 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) west of Gjølme in Orkdal.
