Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Nelson Pond

One of my favorite dives in all of Central Vermont. Large boulders, some wall and shelf dives too. You'll see Large mouth Bass, trout and small pumpkin seed fish. You'll enjoy some scavenger hunting along shore in 20-30 ft and you'll enjoy some large boulders underwater from 10- 60 ft down. I never get bored at this location and the water clarity is the best in mid summer when it's bad everywhere else. From Route 14 in East Calais take the Dump road to the end to the North Calais road and turn right, take the first left and #10 pond (Mirror Lake) will be the first body of water on the right and you can dive here as well, but go on about another 2 miles to Nelson Pond which the road bends right around the pond to the boat launch area. The Vermont Scuba Diving Club has gained permission from Mr. Anderson ( a camp owner) to dive right off his lawn next to his camp. His camp is back from the boat launch there is a road that goes around the south side of the pond, take this road and he is the last camp in. The camp is Red and he said we can park at least a couple cars, if more be sure to just knock on his door and ask. He enjoys watching us divers. SO please ask, Thanks, Marke Englert (Vermont Scuba Diving Club coordinator and past President, 802-433-9897)
