Hoang Xuan Lam (1921-) was a general officer in the Army of the Republic of Viet Nam, a loyalist to Nguyen Van Thieu, who headed I Corps tactical zone starting in the 1966 Buddhist crisis and was still in charge at the time of the 1972 Eastertide invasion.

He had been the senior ARVN officer for the failed Operation Lam Son 719 invasion of Laos, although he was relieved of command during the operation. This was an unusual incident of judging on performance rather than political loyalty.
