Several reservoirs lie near the confluence of the Neuquén River (above) and the Limay River (below). The city of Neuquén is located at their intersection.

The southernmost lake is a reservoir created by the El Chocón Dam. The two lakes to the north are part of the Cerros Colorados Complex. The kidney-shaped lake to the east is Pellegrini Lake. Finally, the lighter green, elongated lake in the upper right quadrant is the Casa de Piedra Lake.
