Create an itinerary including Aurora Reservoir
Aurora Reservoir is a 31,650acre.foot reservoir located in the far southeastern reach of Aurora, Colorado. Senac Creek and other minor streams flow into the reservoir's three coves, Senac, Marina and Lone Tree, each pointing to the south. The reservoir provides drinking water to the City of Aurora, and is also a recreation area.
Filled in 1990, the reservoir provides drinking water for the City of Aurora, which it also uses as a recreational facility. Miles of undeveloped prairie originally separated the reservoir from the city's neighborhoods, and its location has been referred to as "Aurora's Outback". However, over 3,500 new homes in the two new suburban communities, Beacon Point and Southshore are currently under construction immediately southwest of the reservoir, in addition to much other development in the area including the Southlands Lifestyle Center (approx 2mi west of the reservoir), Cherokee Trail High School and Fox Ridge Middle School (1/2 mile southwest) and thousands of other homes in the vicinity.

  • Only problem with this experience is there isnt much shopping or variety of options to eat. But kids had a very good time over all.

  • How have I lived in Colorado for 5 years and not known we have a beach! A nice one. We came by to check this place out. So happy we did. They let us turn our day pass into an annual pass. You can also add a 2nd vehicle for an additional $30. We might do that too. Swimming area, fishing areas, boats, kayaks, paddle boards. So much to do. There is even an indoor nature center where they do things with the kids. A great place to cool down too. You can rent kayaks and paddle boards. You can also rent cover led ares for your own use. We arw absolutely excited to make use of this year round park. They also have locker rooms and bathrooms.
  • Great trails for running/biking all the way around the resvoir with a nice beach to play, and lots of fishing spots available as well. They do a good job keeping the place nice and clean.
