Stony Fork Creek’s Hidden Gem - Stony Fork PA

Stony Fork Creek’s Hidden Gem is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in Stony Fork, PA 16901. This dive site has an average rating of 4.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 26-30ft/8-9m. The average visibility is 11-15ft/3-5m.

I won’t give out this secret spot unless you’re willing to do some research on your own ;) At summers highest heat and dry, I found 25’ in the hole. 30’ is normal water max depth. Hard descent from road to hole (but not far, just steep). One tank will be all you’ll use here as you’ll have explored the whole area at least twice over. Popular swimming hole.

I went scuba diving here on 7/12/2014. Average viz: 11-15ft/3-5m. Water temp: 56-60°F/13-16°C.
Had a ton of fun in this hole. Super good clarity. Neat "landscape". Rock cliff face on one side, tiered rock drops on opposing side, waterfall on upstream side you can go right underneath, sloping pebble descent on downstream side of hole. Found 25’. I found almost a full wallet (wallet, id, driver license, college id, money, bank cards, etc) and returned it to the address on the drivers license in town. Also found a nice shirt, and a pair of kids snorkel goggles. Seen a few trout with one being the largest trout i’ve seen in these waters ever (no fish tale here, but I’d guess in around 30"). The fish didn’t even move when I found him tucked away under a cut at the bottom of the one cliff face. I’ll definitely waste another tank here again.
