The body of water is one of the 150 lakes within the Cotswold Country Park and Beach and managed by Cotswold Water Park Trust.
It is an area of more than 40 square miles with 180 freshwater lakes.
A tweet posted by Cotswold Country Park on Monday, several hours before the incident, said: “In this heat, it is tempting to want to swim in the Cotswold Water Park lakes.
“They may look inviting but many can be dangerous.
“If you fancy a dip, please put your safety first and find a lake that is specifically managed for open water swimming.”
Wiltshire Police said: “Our thoughts are with his family at this tragic time.”
