The southern and western shores are wooded and the shore is surrounded by a nearly continuous belt of reeds.

The lake was formed after thawing of the inland ice in the Frankfurt stage of the Vistula glaciation of a large Toteisfeld, which was buried by Sander sands of the re- advancing ice sheet in the Pomeranian stage. With subsequent heating thawed and the spilled dead ice. At these points, a depression formed on the surface Sander, which today forms the lake.
