Vis is a little tough at times but very deep. We do Tec Course there. 180’ is not the bottom.

Some consider the Bluffs separate from the scuba park where everyone does their OW. The Bluffs are deep. I’ve been below 130 during tec dives and have been told 180’ is not the bottom. The park is where a lot of the boats and things are. Both good sites.

Is great with multiple depths. Jim and his wife (owner of C&Js Sports) are the best. Dive it in early to mid March and you may get vis below the thermocline of >100’, cold but amazing for a mid-western lake. Also dive the cove where you turn to go into the park. Several boats, training platforms, etc. Last time I was there they had a treasure chest full of a skull, dagger, colored beads etc. under the bow of a 20+’ fiberglass boat.
