Billings Lake is a 97.4-acre natural water body with a concrete dam, which raised water levels by 10 feet. A number of houses have been built on the western side of the lake, and most of them are occupied only during summer months. The rest of the lake was forested, with the exception of a camp on the northeastern side of the lake. The state maintains a boat ramp on the lake, and power boats are allowed. The lake has a maximum depth of 33 feet and a mean depth of 14 feet.
Vegetation was abundant in the shallow water areas of this lake during a September 2005 survey. However, since much of the shoreline was rocky and steeply sloped, making it not conducive to plant growth, most of the lake was clear of vegetation. The invasive Myriophyllum heterophyllum was the most abundant species. The plant grew all around the lake but was most abundant in water 6 feet deep or less, especially in a cove on the eastern side and in a large very shallow area at the southern end of the lake, where it occurred with Nymphaea odorata, Nuphar variegata, unidentifiable sedge and a number of submerged species.
