I have been diving this site for over 20 years as it is very close for me. They have paddlefish now and I love snorkeling to see them- diving is great here, except after a heavy rain. Boats, hot tub, jet ski, airplane and many other things. Zebra mussels clean water so Visibility gets better every year. $15 fee for 24 hour pass

I just finished two days of diving at Philips quarry, February 26 and 27, 2012. I was very pleasantly surprised about this quarry. The vis ranged from 15 feet to ~40+ feet at different parts. The depth is ~45 to 55ft in about 90% of the quarry. There is lots of stuff to see; cars, boats, airplane fuselage, a giant storage tank on its side and penetrable. The staff at the local dive shop, www.leaird-scuba.com, which owns the quarry, was very friendly and accommodating. Other than Gilboa in Ohio, Philips quarry is one of the best places to dive at in the midwest in the winter-time when everything else is closed or has ice on it. Philips quarry generally has ice only from January to mid February, but in 2012 ice was present only for about 2 weeks in January. Most of my local dives are at Wazee and lake Michigan and I highly recommend Philips Quarry in the Winter time.

I dive this site every weekend, and take my open water divers to this site. The site has an easy entry and ladder exits. Wonderful fish, and turtle life in the summer. The site has zebra mussels, a negative, since they are an invasive species, however, the positive has been up to 75 feet of horizontal visibility this past summer.

Vis is much better than a few years ago due to Zebra Mussels.
