Creed Conn Lake is a location in Barlow County in the Melisende Dulac Series.


Located in a central Barlow County, Creed Conn Lake forms the headwaters of Goose Creek, which flows into the Palmer River. A number of vacation homes surround the lake, including one rented by Lauren Talbot for the forensic anthropology team tasked with moving the graves from the Hensley Asylum cemetery to Bluebunch Glen Memory Garden.

The lake is named for John Creed Conn, a Silver Lake, Oregon merchant whose 1904 murder was originally attributed to a local Sheepshooters Association. Subsequent research by Lake County historian Melany Tupper suggests the murder was in fact committed by school teacher (and convicted forger) Ray Van Buren Jackson.
