Whaley Lake is located in the town of Pawling in southeastern Dutchess County in New York State, United States. It is the largest lake in Dutchess County.
The lake is partially man-made as it is controlled by a dam at its northern end. The lake feeds into the Fishkill Creek which empties into the Hudson River at Beacon, New York.
The Lake is accessible via New York State Route 292, which runs along the south and west sides of the lake. The eastern shore of Whaley Lake is bordered by Metro-North Railroad's Beacon Line, which will service the Maybrook Trailway as a part of the Empire State Trail project, which will run through New York State and is set to be completed by 2020.
