The lake is Eutrophic, with an acreage of 295 acres with a max depth of 14 feet and a mean depth of 9. It is fed by two main tributaries, Pickerel Creek and Brazell Creek; while being drained by only one, Boot Creek which flows into Rice Lake. There are a total of 41 native species present; while only two non-native species have been recorded. The lake sees heavy boat traffic in summer, resulting in the increased risk of AIS contamination.
