When the lake was filled with water, the ecosystem in Feneos fundamentally changed. In the middle of the lake, there is an island with the church Agios Fanourios. There used to be also a monastery of Saint George but it was replaced because this area was meant to be swamped. In the northeast of the lake, a dam is created partly by the land and partly by concrete. The lake is surrounded by forests, mostly pines, in the north the lake is surrounded by a mountain range Chelmos (Aroania) , which elevates up to 1,164 m above the sea level in the southeast.
It is possible to get to the lake on three roads, one of them connects Feneos with Kalyvia (Ancient Feneos) and serves as a connection with the road GR-33 from Patras to Kalavryta. Nearby is also the only road from Zarouchla to Acrata. Tourists usually use the roads 4WD.
The closest accommodating facilities are situated in Gkoúra close to Lake Doxa, for example the in the hotels Arthoniko Predari, Xenona Goura and Xenonas Semeli.
