Lake Evendim or Nenuial was a lake of Middle-earth.
The elven name Nenuial is Sindarin for "Lake of Twilight", suggesting that it was best seen at that time of day. The lake was about 100 miles north of the Shire in northern Eriador. It was approximately 50 miles from north to south and 20 miles east to west. It was bounded on the west by the Emyn Uial (Hills of Evendim) and on the south by a ridge of hills not named. On its southern shore was Annúminas, the first capital of Arnor.
The Baranduin or Brandywine River flows out of the lake to the east.
Lake Evendim does not play a role in any of the extant stories of Middle-earth, but it is mentioned from time to time in Appendixes to LOTR.
The lake Evendim and surrounding Hills are greatly fleshed out in The Lord of the Rings Online, where the majority of the area is available for exploration and adventuring.
