Charles Dormer, 2nd Earl of Carnarvon (25 October 1632 – 29 November 1709), was an English peer.

Baptised in St Benet's in London, he was the son of the 1st Earl of Carnarvon and Lady Anna Sophia Herbert. Dormer was educated at the University of Oxford, where he graduated with a Master of Arts in 1648. In 1643, he succeeded to his father's titles and became Hereditary Chief Avenor and Keeper of the King's Hawks.

He died in Ascott House and was buried in Wing in Buckinghamshire. With his death the earldom and the viscountcy became extinct, while the baronetcy and barony were inherited by Rowland Dormer, a grandson of the second son of the 1st Baron Dormer.

Dormer was married twice. Firstly to Hon. Elizabeth Capel, daughter of the 1st Baron Capel around 1653,

and secondly to Lady Mary Bertie, daughter of 2nd Earl of Lindsey, with whom he had no issue.
