Rodman Reservoir is a reservoir located on the Oklawaha River in Putnam County in north central Florida. The lake, located about 15 miles southwest of Palatka, is between State Road 19 on the east and State Road 315 on the west.

The lake was created in the 1960s when the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers constructed the Rodman Dam as part of the now defunct Cross Florida Barge Canal project.[2]
