Gunner Pool (Ozark National Forest) is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located at Forest Road 1102, Mountain View, AR 72560. The maximum depth is 11-15ft/3-5m. The average visibility is 21-25ft/6-8m.

Gunner Pool is a dammed up creek in the Ozark National Forest. It’s very shallow (only about 13 ft. at the deepest), but a beautiful area. It’s located right in the campground (right next to the campsites). You’ll need to dive this in the winter for the vis (30 ft). During the rest of the year it’s too murky, and it has to be pretty clear to justify a 13 ft. dive. Water temp in winter is about 45-50 degrees.
