The lake lies on Jurassic rock crushed into north to south ridges by the Alpine orogeny It is therefore long and narrow, though rather sinuous in plan It is about 30 kilometres long though only 21 km in a straight line It lies in the valley of the Ain, impounded by the dam at Cernon The old village of Vouglans was displaced by its construction in 1968 by Électricité de France EDF

Some buildings of the Carthusian monastery of Vaucluse were also moved to make way for the rising waters and to save them from demolition

The lake is arranged for tourism with view-points scattered through the woods which cover the hillsides along its shores and places set up for bathing and boating

The annual mean flow of water at the dam is 4080 cubic metres per second
