Lake Faak or Faaker See (German: Faaker See, Slovene: Baško jezero) is an alpine lake in the Austrian state of Carinthia. With an area of approximately 2.2 km², it is the state's fifth-largest lake. Lake Faak is a popular vacation and swimming destination, known for its clear turquoise water. Fishing, especially for whitefish (German: Reinanke), is also quite popular.
The lake is located south of Villach and the Drava River at the northern slope of the Karawanks mountain range. The settlements of Drobollach and Egg on the northern shore belong to the City of Villach. The village of Faak to the southwest, after which the lake is named, is part of the municipality of Finkenstein.
