Lake Evendim, or Nenuial ("Lake of Twilight") in Sindarin, was a lake in Middle-earth.

The lake is about 100 miles north of the Shire in northern Eriador. It is approximately 50 miles from north to south and 20 miles east to west. It is bounded on the west by the Emyn Uial (Hills of Evendim) and on the south by a ridge of hills not named. On its southern shore was Annúminas, the first capital of Arnor.

The Baranduin or Brandywine River flows out of the lake to the east.

Lake Evendim does not play a role in any of the extant stories of Middle-earth, but it is mentioned from time to time.
