Clear Springs Scuba Park - Terrell TX


Loading...
Our Park officially opened June 15, 2000 and we have come a long way since that time. We offer a 22 acre spring-fed lake that has some of the most beautiful and natural habitat ever seen in a fresh water Texas lake. The maximum depth is approximately 63 feet and water temperature and visibility updates can be found by clicking on the message board link on the left.

We currently have a state of the art air compressor and air fills are $8.00 (we do not have Nitrox). Please see the detailed layout of our lake by clicking on the MAP link on the left. We try to update the Map as changes are made but things happen pretty fast around the Park!! We currently have a small but growing inventory of rental equipment so please call first to make sure we have what you need. Please click on the "Rental Gear" on the left to view our gear with prices. To reserve gear, you will need to call us at 972-524-6820.

EVERYONE entering the Park will be required to sign a WAIVER and you should bring your C-Card (if applicable). Dive Shops and Private Instructors will be required to show proof of liability insurance and Kaufman Recreational Management, Inc. and Clear Springs Scuba Park LLC should be listed as additional insured’s. I should also point out that being a spring-fed lake there is a thermocline just below 20’ so bring a full wet suit, hood and gloves. If you do not have a full suit, that’s not a problem. You can either stay above 20’ where it is a balmy 80 degrees in the summer or rent one of our newly stocked wetsuits or a drysuit for the really cold natured diver.

We continue to strive upon improvements and want Clear Springs to be the best and that will only happen with your help and we welcome constructive criticism and suggestions. Improvements made include an onsite deli-"Diver’s Deli." Our menu is limited but we have sandwiches, chips, snacks, drinks, bagged ice, etc.. We will continue to refine the menu as we go. We have constructed pavilions for shade and will continue to add more. We currently have 9 underwater platforms at approximately 20 feet, 6 entry docks. And of course, there is Sisco, the 50 foot shark, a Cabin Cruiser, and a few other "surprises". We have the restroom with hot showers located next to the air fill station.

There are several large boats to explore, One Cessna airplane that hovers at about 14ft tied to a chain that goes to the bottom. Looks like the plane is actually flying through the water. They have an American eagle cargo plane that was really cool to explore. Several curious large bass and crappie.

Lots of training classes going on very low vis, as expected. Visited Several platforms, American Classic boat, "sharky" shark submarine, American Airlines rescue trainer. Practiced NAV. Of course with Vis so low we passed up the boat twice and didn’t realize it.

Nice and close to the house. Visibility on Sunday is worse than Saturday due to Saturday being popular with SCUBA certification classes.
