The fishing is very good and if you're into birding, the location is great. It has a $10.00 entrance fee and an annual fee that is close to $48.00. However, if you live near by it is worth doing.

Last year I commented on the issue of goose poop on the beach. I don't think the geese have been trained to drop their droppings somewhere else so kudos to whom ever is responsible for cleaning up the beach. Last year I was critical about the condition of the beach so I was pleased to see the beach was very... More

We had a lovely day at the reservoir. We went to the swim beach which was pretty well maintained and also had lifeguards. There was also a pretty cool little playground next to the swim area. Additionally, there were plenty of shady places to set up a picnic. I recommend trying out the Aurora Reservoir next time you are looking... More

I brought my daughter and her friend out here to enjoy a hot summer day out by the water. I was pleasantly surprised! The swim beach was nice, the paddleboarding and paddle boats were fun and not too expensive! They have a concession stand, playground, lots of sand for sports and lots of picnic areas to bring your own food/drinks.... More

Went to kayak for the day. Had to pay $10 admission and $10 to have my kayak inspected. Inspector was not a friendly guy. Would recommend for rentals, but not for using your own equipment unless you live close by or have small children. Takes about 10-15 minutes to paddle across the lake for an adult.

Nice place to escape the City and spend the day on the water boating and fishing, or biking around the lake. Dogs are welcome on leash. Would like to see an off-leash dog area.

The beach at Aur. Res. is the cleanest beach in these parts. Little to no goose poop, really nice white sand, clear water. The kids love it. It has a very nice atmospere with nicely kept grounds and great playground too. Highly recommend for this land-locked state!
