Lake Czorsztyn is a man-made reservoir on the Dunajec river, southern Poland, between the Pieniny and the Gorce Mountains. It owes its existence to a dam, which is located in the village of Niedzica.

The lake has the area ranging from 4.15 square kilometres to 13.35 square kilometres. Usually, its area is approximately 11 square kilometres, with the length of 9 kilometres and width of 1.5 kilometres. Maximum depth is 50 metres, and average depth is 17.6 metres. Total length of the shoreline is 29.7 kilometres. Below the dam there is a much smaller Sromowce Lake, which regulates the water level of Czorsztyn Lake.
