The artificial lake was built on the stream Sulistrowicki below the village Sulistrowice for flood protection and recreation purposes. It is possible to swim and do water sports on the lake (equipment rental is available, including with kayaks and pedalos). A holiday resort (Ośrodek Wypoczynku Świątecznego) is open year round and offers 88 beds in single-storey bungalows and one storey hotel buildings. There are also places for camping in tents and caravans. The Radunia restaurant offers all-day catering.
