Blue Lakes is up a rough gravel road maybe 3 miles... We dove on a Wed. We had the lake to ourselves which hugely increases visibility, as several classes invade the lake on the weekends and the bottom is very silty. With two of us in the water our visibility was approx 20 ft. water temperature was 78 and air temp was 50 deg. it was a great day to visit Blue Lake! We visited both small boat wrecks and several of the sculptures that litter the bottom. There are no services at Blue Lake, from what I can tell the nearest Air fills are Bonneville sea base (guessing 2 hours away). The lake is reached by way of 200 feet of board walk that crosses a marsh to the staging area. KUDOS to the ppl who built that! Wendover offers cheap rooms through out the weekdays and is only half hour from the parking lot. Reason I gave this site a lower rating for advanced and beginner divers is the silty bottom that goes along with beginners, and the lack of things to see for the advanced divers.
