Neegronda is the second largest of the four reservoirs that make up what are traditionally called the Great Plains Reservoirs. The others are Neenoshe, Neesopah, and Neeskah. The reservoirs are located just south of Eads in Kiowa County in southeastern Colorado. Neegronda, which is Cheyenne for Big Water, along with the other Great Plains Reservoirs, is a modified playa lake. Usually very shallow, playa lakes or natural-basin reservoirs have provided water seasonally for the wildlife and native people of the Southern Great Plains. In recent times the reservoirs have been used to store flood water for irrigation. Built by the Great Plains Water Company, the Great Plains Reservoirs project is the most extensive of its kind in the west. Water to fill the reservoirs is diverted from the Arkansas River through a series of canals and gates. With the exception of Neeskah, the reservoirs are linked together. Their water was use for irrigation for the first time in 1990.
In addition to providing valuable water for irrigation, Nee Gronda also provides recreation opportunities for residents and visitors to the area. Although there are no marinas around the lake, there are public boat ramps including a newly completed ramp made with baled recycled tires. Along with motorized boating there is sail boating and waterskiing and Neegronda is a good place to wind surf. Primitive camping, showers, and a private campground means the fun doesn't have to stop when the sun goes down.
