The lake, hidden among the wild ranges of the Low Beskids, was created within the construction of a dam on the Ropa river (about 18 km south of Gorlice).
You can reach it by turning from the road no. 28 Nowy Sącz – Jasło, into the road from Ropa to Uście Gorlickie. The lake is known primarily to enthusiasts of windsurfing because it offers perfect conditions for practicing this sport. However, there are no official bathing areas or guarded beaches.
