The lake was created by damming the Little Red River and covers an area of 1,973 acres. The lake serves as a primary source of drinking water for the nearby town of Clarendon. The hydrology of the area is influenced by the nearby Caprock Escarpment, which serves as a dividing line between the high plains and the rolling plains of Texas. The lake receives water from several small tributaries and also from snowmelt during the winter months. The lake is used for various recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping. The area surrounding the lake is primarily used for agriculture, with crops such as cotton and wheat being grown.
