Three Oaks Recreation Area - Crystal Lake IL

Three Oaks Recreation Area was opened in 2013 for SCUBA training ONLY. Instructor or Dive Shop MUST file insurance docs to be able to bring students. It is a good open water training facility and rumors are it will be opened to public for diving in the next couple of years. However 3 Oaks primarily is a Fishing lake and beach so scuba divers are limited to small designated area. Diving area has 4 platforms at about 20-25 ft of water. Visibility usually over 50 Ft.

Just went diving there on 6/20/18. The visibility was great, and zillions of new born fish. Its great for a practice or refresher dive. There was a buoyancy course of triangles and such, and a few concrete tubes to swim through.

It is a good place to do instruction, but from a recreational dive site there is not much to see.
