Lake Miramar is a reservoir located in the Scripps Miramar Ranch community of San Diego, California. Owned, operated and maintained by the City of San Diego, the reservoir was completed in 1960 as part of the second San Diego Aqueduct project. Water flowing south to the reservoir originates from both the Colorado River Aqueduct and the California Aqueduct, brought into San Diego by the San Diego County Water Authority.

Lake Miramar is a popular recreation site. Activities include boating, fishing, picnicking, and the use of an over 5 mile long trail wrapping around the lake. There are 18 barbecues and 48 picnic tables for family outings. Self contained gas barbecues are allowed in designated areas. Ground fires, glass containers and camping are not allowed at the park.
