Laquey (pronounced "Lake-wāy") is an unincorporated community in Pulaski County, Missouri. It is about six miles southwest of Waynesville. It was founded in 1900 and named for the Laquey family.

The community has a school, post office and zip code. Along with Devils Elbow, it is one of only two unincorporated places in Pulaski County to retain a post office, and along with Swedeborg, is one of only two unincorporated communities in the county to retain a school.

While the community is unincorporated, it is experiencing rapid growth due to its proximity to Fort Leonard Wood. The Laquey R-V School District had been for many years a K-8 district but in the early 1970s expanded to begin a high school. It's now the third-largest school district in Pulaski County, after Waynesville and Dixon.
