Lake Carmel is a hamlet (and census-designated place) in the town of Kent in Putnam County, New York, United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 8,282.

The home of over half of the town of Kent's population, Lake Carmel is centered on the eponymous artificial lake, in the southeast corner of the township and just north of Carmel. Lake Carmel was developed in the 1920s and thereafter by the Smadbeck brothers, who excavated and dammed a swamp and sold lots through the now-defunct New York Daily Mirror. Lake Carmel is the seat of a volunteer fire district, Lake Carmel Fire Department, covering the eastern half of the township, and of the Kent town government.
