Due to his protected location the Lake possesses an excellent water quality (A Grade). In hot summers the Lake invites for jumping into the clear water which hardly warms up to more than 14 °C. On the southern shore grow lots of blueberries and cranberries. Several kinds of trouts live also in the water. The Lake gets water only through rain and melting of snow.
