Lake Como is a small, relatively shallow lake in the Town of Summerhill, located in the Oswego-Seneca-Oneida River Basin, south of the Seneca River. It is an upland lake, formed in the upper portions of the Cayuga Lake Fall Creek sub-Watershed. It is part of an extensive wetland system. Two unnamed tributaries (rivers or streams flowing into a larger river or lake) enter Lake Como in the north and the water flows from the lake via the Lake Como Outlet in the south.
