Roberds Lake is a lake in Rice County, in the U.S. state of Minnesota.

Roberds Lake was named after William Roberds, who was told from the other early settlers that if he swam across that they would name the lake after them, so he did and ever since the lake was named after him. He was also a pioneer who started a mill near the lake in 1855.
