Gölhisar (Lakecastle) is a town and district of Burdur Province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey.

Ibn Battuta visited the small town of Qul Hisar, noting "There is no way to reach it except by a path like a bridge constructed between the rushes and the water, and broad enough only for one horse-man."[3]
