Lago Cochrane National Reserve, also known as Tamango National Reserve, is a nature reserve located 6 km (4 mi) northeast of the town of Cochrane, in Aysén del General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo Region, Chile. It is named after Cochrane Lake, which, according to C. Michael Hogan, is a large lake of glacial origin. The reserve occupies the slope of Cerro Tamango and is bordered by Cochrane Lake and Cochrane River on the south side. The endangered South Andean Deer is found in the reserve.

The park has an average annual temperature of 10 °C (50 °F) and a summer mean maximum temperature of 14 °C (57 °F). Annual precipitation ranges between 805 to 1,000 mm (32 to 39 in).

A new, 25,000 km² national park is to combine Lago Cochrane National Reserve, Lago Jeinimeni National Reserve and the privately owned Conservacion Patagonica which encompasses Chacabuco Valley.
