Two causeways cross the pond ( route 165 to the southeast and Sheldon Rd. to the northeast), dividing it into three distinct basin (northeastern basin, also known as Doaneville Pond, from the middle basin through a culvert. 24, 192 acres encompass the Pachaug River watershed of mostly undeveloped forest with clusters of residential and agricultural land. In addition, to the Pachaug River, the pond is fed by five small brooks. It drains west into Pachaug Pond.
The shoreline is wooded with concentrations of residential development on the southwestern and northeastern shores. Pachaug State Forest abuts the southern and eastern shores.
The transparency of the lake is fair with visibility reduced to 5 ft. during summer by a tea-colored stain. The bottom of the lake consists of fine sand, silt and organic muck. The fishing should be excellent for bullhead and catfish and fair for other species. Early spring bass fishing is reportedly good.
