Dikes Point - Candlewood Lake is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in New Milford, CT. This dive site has an average rating of 3.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 91-100ft/28-30m. The average visibility is under 5ft/2m.

This is a dive site located on the immense Candlewood Lake and used to be a good place to go and get wet. Unfortunately over the years the water quality as deteriorated and visibility is not the greatest.
There are a few wrecks close to shore and parking is very limited but free. Parking in the weekends can be difficult due to the many out of state visitors. Better to visit during the week days.

This used to be a cool place to dive. Unfortunately visibility as declined over the years on this man made lake. Read my description above. There is also a nice trail to walk with the family and your dog. This is a DOG FRIENDLY park and dogs are allowed on the trails and also on the water! There are food places nearby and the park has WC facilities.
