Lake Bolmen is a lake in the municipalities of Gislaved, Hylte, Ljungby and Värnamo in Småland and is part of the main Lagan catchment area. The lake is 36 metres deep, has an area of 173 square kilometres and is 141 metres above sea level.

The lake was created during the last ice age. The water level at that time was lower than it is now, so Lagan could flow from Bolmen to Vättern through what is now called Bolmens älv and Viskan.
