Natural Springs - New Paris OH


Loading...
Come dive in one of the most beautiful spring fed lakes in the Mid-West. Natural Springs Resort scuba diving provides some of the clearest water in the area with several underwater attractions which makes for a perfect dive training environment.

With huge Bass, Catfish, Bluegill and Grass Carp over 4 feet long, we have lots of natural wildlife to enjoy.

One of the things that will entice you is our unique “freshwater jellyfish”, that while only about the size of a dime, maintain all the beauty of their full size saltwater cousins! (no, they won’t hurt you, there too small). See our featured article in the June 2010 issue of Dive Training Magazine.

Your dive fee provides you with dive privileges, a free tank of air, as well as access to the beach and pool. Lake access is integrated with our parking lot so loading and unloading of equipment is very convenient. Restrooms and warm showers are located near by at our store. Between dives get refreshed and grab a snack from the store or eat a whole meal from the grill. If you have family or friends that do not dive they can come along and enjoy the beach, pool or play miniature golf while you are diving.

Better yet, bring your RV or stay in one of our cabins and enjoy all that Natural Springs has to offer for a weekend or a week.

When does scuba diving end for the year at Natural Springs ?

Aguaguy, if you call them they will let you in year round. I have been there in December and I have been there for a New Years day dive. Just let them know the day and time and they will show up and let you in.
Lutra - 29 days 1 hour ago.
sorry for the late response, but they "close" last day of october. However as mentioned if you call a couple days ahead they will have someone there to let you in during the off season

Visibility is hit or miss but May and June it’s really clear and great to dive.

Interesting by the platforms that are connected. Depending on the time of year,vis is 15-20 early spring. There is a thermocline out past the last platform.
