Wildwood Lake is a natural lake located in Suffolk County on Long Island in Northampton near Riverhead, New York, United States. The lake was formed by glaciers during the last Ice age. There is a variety of fish species present in the lake, including:

  • Largemouth Bass
  • Chain Pickerel
  • Pumpkinseed
  • Yellow Perch
  • White Perch
  • Brown bullhead
  • Rock Bass

The lake is also stocked with Trout by the Town of Southampton.

Fishing in Wildwood Lake is limited to Southampton residents or persons accompanied by a resident guide only. There is a state DEC access ramp for small hand- or electric-powered craft, but fishing is limited, as stated above.

It is said that there was once a road crossing through the middle of the lake, but it has never been proven.
