This is an Old Quarry. There is at least a sunken aircraft and a Bank Vault at the bottom. Depth in the middle has been rumored at 80-100 ft. Going below the thermocline requires a dry suit or really thick skin. Visibility is poor to nil with an average of 3-4 ft. If you really need to get wet you can do it here. This site is a budget family camp ground. Tell them at the gate that you are there to dive and you will get a discount on the admission. About the only use for this site is for local Certification classes (One on One). We found it useful to practice navigational skills. Take a bearing on the other shore(200-300 yds.), drop down 10 Ft. and swim through the soup to see how close you came to your target. The occasional Bass will appear out of the soup and swim up to your face and scare the Heck out of you! The water will clear if it has not rained in a good while. Otherwise, you will feel things before you see them. The site is generally safe but really scary if you are claustrophobic or have a vivid imagination. Worth one dive if you are in the neighborhood but not worth the trip otherwise.
