Lake Charles is a brackish lake located on the Calcasieu River in Southwest Louisiana, United States, just behind the western tier of the City of Lake Charles' city limits. The water is a dark greenish-brown. There is a thick layer of sediment at the bottom of the lake.

The average depth of the lake is approximately five feet, and there is a deep channel down the middle for large ships to pass. Overhead is the I-10 bridge, from which 17 people have jumped to their deaths.
