The reservoir sits in a valley surrounded by a mix of ponderosa pine forests, hills, and arid grasslands. The reservoir itself contains numerous coves and arms, deep holding water near the dam, and plenty of islands and rocky shorelines. Fed by Miller Creek, the reservoir comprises 3,950 acres, with an average depth of 30 feet and maximum depth of 70 feet. There are campgrounds, hiking trails, and 29 miles of shoreline, most of which is accessible by dirt roads. Bald eagles, golden eagles, prairie falcons, osprey, american kestrels, and sandhill cranes inhabit the area.
