this is some of the best fresh water diving in the midwest! the water can
be cold the deeper you go, but the vis is great!usually in the 75-100 ft
range..never seen vis less than 50ft!no boats or motors to worry about.also
has separate beach for swimming.the max depth is about 350ft so you see
alot of tech diving for thoise who are trained.this was an open iron quarry
that is spring fed.there is a winding roadway following the outside
underwater edge so your depth is pretty easy to control.the bottom terrain
is varied with alot of "wall" diving!has a huge underwater
"forest" that is ghostly to dive in..also alot of huge boulders
to swim around..several buoyed training platforms underwater.very
clean,also restrooms and campsites on site. easy "walk in" shore
entries.a good selection of reasonable motels and restaurants.also air and
nitox available. our bunch dove both wet and dry suits and all stayed
comfortable.DUI holds their drysuit demo day there.
