Lake Massasecum is a 409-acre (1.66 km2) water body located in Merrimack County in central New Hampshire, United States, in the town of Bradford. Outflow from the lake travels via the Warner River to the Contoocook River and then the Merrimack River.

Lake Massasecum is used for numerous recreational activities, including boating, fishing, swimming, and water skiing by both pond residents and transient boaters.  There is one designated public access for boats on the western side of the lake. Motor boats, as well as kayaks and canoes can use this facility. There is limited parking for about two or three vehicles with trailers along Route 114 near the launch.

The lake is classified as a warmwater fishery, with observed species including smallmouth and largemouth bass, black crappie, chain pickerel, and horned pout.
