Lake Kanasatka is a 371-acre (150 ha) lake located in Carroll County in the Lakes Region of central New Hampshire, United States, in the town of Moultonborough. Early maps refer to this pristine lake as Long Pond, presumably because of its long and narrow shape. The lake is located one-half mile north of and nine vertical feet higher than Lake Winnipesaukee.

The lake is classified as a warmwater fishery and contains largemouth and smallmouth bass, chain pickerel, white perch, yellow perch, sunfish, and brown bullhead.[1]

The lake has about 180 homes, the Kilnwood Homeowners Association development comprising 29 homes with a shared waterfront. Lake Kanasatka also has two residential summer camps, Camp Quinebarge and Camp Hawkeye, both on the northern shore of the lake.[2] Lake Kanasatka is an oligotrophic lake, with high water clarity and scattered emergent plants.[3]
