I have made at least a hundred dives there 20 years ago. I assisted in classes there. Not sure about now but there was a steel boat, fiberglass boat, motorcycle, toilet and two training platforms. There was a beep dark hole about 30’ deep and colder than the rest of the lake. I used a 3mm shorty but I get cold easy. I plan on going there as soon as they open up again. I am looking for a dive buddy also. I have a lot of experience. I took a Divemaster course twice and passed both times just never completed filing the papers to get the Certification. Long story I’ll talk about it with you directly.

Did not need a wetsuit, quite nice temperature.

Found one rowboat, 2 training platforms and a vertically anchored hula-hoop.

Bottom is rather flat at 20’ with minor vegetation lining most of it.
