Fairly shallow throughout the quarry, but is more "alive" with plants and fish than any other quarries in the area. It contains the usual boats, cars, etc. The quarry is surrounded by a very nice campground complete with a snack bar, swimming pool and sandy beach area. There is plenty of parking and pavement all the way to the staging area for divers. Air is available on site. All of the park staff are friendly and helpful.
With easy access off and on I-70 at exit 156b (Richmond, IN.), your access is via ALL paved roads (including into the park!) and yet far enough away from the freeway (2.5 miles) that you can enjoy the feelings of being in the great outdoors. Directions: East or Westbound, take Indiana exit 156B to Eastbound US 40. Travel 1.5 miles to flashing yellow light and turn left onto State Route 320. Travel 1 mile into village of New Paris, passing a Sunoco Gas Station on your left.. Look for our resort sign just after the Sunoco, on the left.
