Never Lake is a very large and beautiful clear lake in an open, green-fielded landscape with some occasional rock formations. The borders of the lake are surrounded by steep cliffs with no beach below them. Around Never Lake are several mountains and large rock formations. The lake also has a single river connected to it, though it is unspecified whether it serves to drain or feed the lake.
Seeking to submit Little Planet, a giant metal chain was set up by Dr. Robotnik from a rock formation at Never Lake to chain the satellite to earth while the doctor searched for the Time Stones on it. Heading to Never Lake for himself, Sonic the Hedgehog arrived only to narrowly dodge the mountain debris around Never Lake knocked loose by the chain before heading off to stop Robotnik and save Little Planet. Upon succeeding Sonic returned to Never Lake with Robotnik's previous captive Amy Rose and cut the giant chain, allowing Little Planet to disappear above Never Lake.
