Long Lake

Location of the Long Lake

The Long Lake was an oval-shaped lake situated at the confluence of the Forest River and the northern reaches of the River Running, south of the Lonely Mountain.

The lake was about twenty miles from north to south, and at least five miles from east to west at its widest.[1][2]

History Edit

Long Lake by Jeremiah Humphries

Depiction of the Long Lake by Jeremiah Humphries

The town of Lake-town, whose name refers to this lake, was (twice) built entirely upon the lake itself, thus forming a natural moat.[3] After Smaug's demise, his dying body fell into the lake with a mighty crash.[4] Smaug's remains could be seen sticking out of the water from the shore of the lake, but people feared them and treasure-hunters did not dare approach the carcass.[4]
