Lake Rawlings in VA is ClosingLake Rawlings in Rawlings, Virginia is closing. Here is an excerpt from their website:

"It is with sadness that I must tell you our company is on the losing end of negotiations for the continued use of the Rawlings Quarry properties after March 31, 2015. Negotiations to purchase the properties were tilted too far to the side of the landowner, and the family owners would not give us a long term lease or sell their properties to us."

Every Fri - Sun in March, 2015...they are have a liquidation sale of new and used scuba equipment.

This is a big loss to the diving community on the east coast. Many divers have enjoyed this facility and it is sad to see it close.

If anyone has information on the future plans of this lake, please post a comment below.

Should be opened up full-time by May 1st! Slight price increase, but we will see how things go other than that.
