West Hill Pond is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in New Hartford, CT. This dive site has an average rating of 5.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 61-70ft/19-21m. The average visibility is 16-20ft/5-6m. Training platforms are available.

West Hill Pond (Lake) is perhaps the best fresh water dive in the whole state of Connecticut with amazing visibility, fish life and great rock formations. There is also a training platform near the island. During the Summer you can dive from the dock in the park or from the state boat ramp during the off season.
Keep in mind that this is a spring fed lake and if you want warmer water you must dive it in the Summer otherwise in the late Fall and Winter the water can be cold. Great for drysuit.

Connecticut’s best fresh water dive. I forgot to mention when I added this site, that there is a small food joint near the state boat ramp that makes great lobster rolls!
