This is a cold water dive and will call for either a dry or 7mm suit. There are a number of entry points and it is best to stop and ask at the camp store on the lake to get the best options for the water levels. This is also a lake that is about 3000 feet above sea level so one need to take that into consideration when setting up the dive

This is a South Dakota site, and the local town is Pickstown. There are a number of dive sites in the lake; all of them are beach walk-ins. There is not a lot to see, but then seeing at all is a good thing when it comes to diving the Mighty Mo. So we brag about 10 to 15 feet. The spear fishing (in season) is good and this is a great training site. Dive flag and care will need to be taken, as there are lots of boats (by SD standards) on the lake.

This is a well cared for wreck site. The Hesper was a 250' wooden ship that was built in 1890 and sunk in May of 1905. The dive is off the end of the breakwater at the Silver Bay small boat harbor. The diver will need to climb over some of the breakwater rocks to get to a small pad at the waters edge. This is a fun dive.
