• Length: 90 Miles
• Surface Area: 2,300 Acres
• Average Depth: 18 Feet
Lake of Egypt is a man-made lake in the Little Egypt region of the U.S. state of Illinois. It is located six miles (10 km) south of Marion, Illinois and covers 2,300 acres (9 km²) with 90 miles (145 km) of shoreline. The lake has an average depth of 18 feet (5.5 m) with a maximum depth of 52 feet (15.8 m). The lake is owned by the Southern Illinois Power Cooperative (SIPC), who created the impoundment in 1962, by damming the South fork of the Saline River, to supply cooling water for a coal-burning electric power plant.

As a privately owned lake it is subject to regulation by its owners and the state. Terms of use from the SIPC are in the "Official Lake of Egypt Rules and Regulations". Public access is allowed as are all size boat motors. Waterskiing and jet skis are also permitted in most of the lake. Camping at the lake is allowed at Buck Ridge Campground, part of the Shawnee National Forest
