It is about 630 metres (2,067 ft) long and 400 metres (1,312 ft) wide, lies at an elevation of 377 metres (1,237 ft). The lake is in the Michipicoten River system in the Lake Superior drainage basin, and is the source of the Lochalsh River. There are no primary inflows, and the primary outflow is the Lochalsh River, north towards St. Julien Lake, which flows into Dog Lake and then via the Michipicoten River into Lake Superior. The Algoma Central Railway runs along the east and shore, and the lake lies between Franz, on the line 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) southwest, and Scully, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north northeast.
