Chadwick Lake is a reservoir supplying water to the Town of Newburgh, in Orange County, New York, United States. It was created by damming Quassaick Creek in 1926. It is located immediately to the northwest of the junction of NY 32 and 300 in the Cronomer Valley section of the town. It is open to the public, and there are recreational facilities near the southern end.

    Most of the town's water is supplied today by New York City's Delaware Aqueduct, with the reservoir acting primarily as a backup.

   Facilities near the lake's southern end, include three pavilions (for rental), a playground, walking trails, boat rentals, basketball courts and a roller rink. No private water vessels allowed. Fishing is allowed on the lake with proper license; largemouth bass is a common catch.
