Went diving here on 10/16/2016. Admissions cost has changed. Rate is now $20/day for divers. Twin Lakes no longer provides air fills. Compressor is down; staff said they don’t know when or if it will be repaired.

Viz: 5-10ft/2-3m. Water temp: 71-75F/22-24C (above thermocline). Thermocline at 27ft/9m. Temp below thermocline 65F/18C.

1st time diving in a lake so I have nothing to compare it to, but I’m not a fan.

Was there Feb. 1, 2015. Water was 56 degrees vizability 5 feet and less. Great for low viz training.

Not too bad for a local dive. There are planes and RVs in the lake. Water had gotten cold after 25ft.

I was not prepared for how cold it got at 20ft down. It was very murky as well.

went there a few years ago. Looked okay but the water level was so low we didn’t even dive. Glad to see decent reviews now. Might give it another try??

Surprisingly a good dive. Easy entry platforms. Nice wrecks, including two planes with one nose down and tail up. Vis was 6-10’ on 8/10/2013. Plenty of fish hanging around too.

Dove here with some students on April 11th, 2009. Water level is down about 15 feet from average due to nearby development. Viz is about 5 feet. Water was 67 degrees.

Be very careful using steps to descend to floating docks. One at a time on ramps.
