The lake is used for recreational activities, such as fishing and boating, and is stocked with a variety of fish species, including bluegill and largemouth bass. There are also several agricultural fields surrounding the lake. While the lake provides a valuable source of water for these fields, agricultural runoff can contribute to water quality issues in the lake.
