Lake is a typical muskeg lake. The only regular water input is from
the north. There is an exit to Whonnock Creek on the south-east
side, closed off by a sandbar that lets water escape from the lake.
A beaver colony helps regulating the water flow. When the water
level in Whonnock Creek is higher than the sandbar fresh water flows
into the lake from Whonnock Creek.

and numerous small birds. The lake is stocked annually with rainbow
trout, and supports a substantial recreational fishery. Large tadpoles
can be found in the shallow water around the shores of the lake.
