Doctors Lake is a body of water located off the St. Johns River in Clay County, Florida. Despite its name, it is not a true lake, as it is actually an inlet, openly connected to the St. Johns. Because of the estuarine nature of the St. Johns, Doctor's Lake is itself somewhat brackish.

Many docks border the lake for recreational activity such as boatingfishing and waterskiing. To the south, the lake splits in half into two small creeks that flow from swampland. Doctors Lake is located at 30°09′10″N 81°42′23″W.

The lake has an area of 13 mi² (34 km²). It is linked to the St. Johns River by Doctors InletU.S. Route 17 crosses the inlet between Orange Park and rural Clay County. To the north is Orange Park, bordering to the west is Lakeside, and to the east is Jacksonville, Florida.
