Peak Creek (private dock) - Pulaski VA

Peak Creek (private dock) is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in Pulaski, VA 24301. This dive site has an average rating of 2.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 61-70ft/19-21m. The average visibility is 5-10ft/2-3m.

Private residence/dock at Peak Creek, very close to Claytor Lake in Pulaski County. Only dived this site twice - once in 2014 and again in 2015, both in summertime. Conditions were very difficult in 2014. Viz was less than 5ft and the bottom is sand/gravel covered in silt and algae which destroys any visibility when disturbed. Lots of largemouth and smallmouth bass, as well as a few catfish and striped bass. Large new river mussels are also at the site. Max depth is 66-68ft. Conditions were much more favorable in 2015 with visibility at least 10ft or a little more.

Despite murky waters of Claytor/Peak Creek I actually really enjoy this site. My friend who is the property owner was kind enough to let us go diving with him. Once in 2014 with rough conditions (less than 5ft viz) and again this summer (2015) with much better conditions. The viz was much better at over 10ft with plenty of friendly bass.
