The lake, which is privately owned, and is used by the university's rowing team. Noted businessman and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie donated money for the construction of the lake, which was donated to Princeton University.

It is the home to the US Olympic rowing team, however, it is also available for public use for activities such as ice skating, fishing, and picnicking.
