It is an artificial reservoir for agricultural irrigation in the county with a storage capacity of 176 million cubic meters. The lake water is clear and pollution-free, and the water quality reaches the second level of the national standard. The lake has the characteristics of open water surface and long shoreline.

The planned development area of the scenic spot is 30 square kilometers, of which the surface area is 8 square kilometers. Here the lake water is clear, quiet and clear, the shallow lakeside is pale green, deep in the lake is luxuriant, and the distant mountains reflect each other, constituting a picture of green water and green mountains.

Xiaotianchi Scenic Area

Located in the mirror of Shuangshipu Township in the middle section of Taihang Mountain in the west of Lincheng County, it is 50 kilometers away from the county town and 44 kilometers away from Baiyun Cave in Kongshan Mountain. The scenic spot has two thousand-year-old ponds in the pine forest of the East Daliang at an altitude of more than 1000 meters, just like "Tianchi", so it is called "Xiaotianchi". On the basis of specific geology, some peculiar peaks have been formed under the action of external forces mainly consisting of flowing water and collapse. For example, due to the hard red quartz sandstone covering at the top of the mountain body in the western part of the scenic area, the weathering and collapse along jointed faults formed a "mountain rock landform" landscape characterized by flat, steep cliffs and gentle feet, commonly known as "dike". These embankments form various peculiar shapes, such as the Golden Embankment on the top of a distant mountain like a magnificent golden palace squatting. There are many strange stone landscapes in the area, which can be roughly divided into three types. One type is red quartz sand residues on the top of the mountain, the occurrence of the strata is close to the level, and the bedding is clear, high rise on the top of the peak, its shape is like "Thousand Layer Cake", and also like a stack of neat codes, red like gold, so it is named "tortoise pack book". The second type is some hard rocks, such as lower Proterozoic sandstone and slate, which occur in upright strata and still stand on ridges after weathering, such as "Lao Niang Shi" and "Fengshi". The third kind of weird rocks is due to the collapse of the cliffs on both sides of the valley and the accumulation of weird rocks on the seabed or bank. For example, two huge rocks like sleeping Kang lie across the left bank of the Huaihe River, hence the name of Shuangshipu Village.
