Lake of the Woods is an unincorporated area and census-designated place (CDP) in southwestern Kern County, California.

The community is in Cuddy Canyon of the San Emigdio Mountains, along the Ventura and Kern County line. It is within the Los Padres National Forest.

The name Lake of the Woods was bestowed by pioneer Mrs. Florence Cuddy, when the community was established in 1925. The reservoir for which it was named has been dry since 1962, when its dam burst.
