Uvas Reservoir is a reservoir in Santa Clara County, California, U.S.A., created in 1957 by the construction of Uvas Dam across Uvas Creek.

Uvas Reservoir is also 1 of 28 county parks owned by Santa Clara County and managed by the Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department.[4][5] This 626-acre (253 ha) park surrounds the reservoir,[6] and provides limited fishing[7] ("catch-and-release"), picnicking, and hiking activities. Boating is not permitted in the reservoir.
