Has anyone been to Round Valley in New Jersey? Many of my buddies are trying to figure out where the sunken village is, and if there’s any "Attractions" down there. Us NYC folks are getting a little tired of Dutch Springs and looking for new places.

Thanks in advanced.

Been there but never dove it, try http://www.shorediving.com/Earth/USA_East/New_Jersey/Round_Valley_Reservoir/index.htm


Other choices in that area would be the boxcar wreck in Delaware water gap on the Pa. side, it’s in a state park so don’t remove the beer bottles from the boxcar.


If you are looking for a shallow training site go east to Babylon, Oak tree park. Bring bug spray!

Thanks Ray. We’re probably going to check it out next season. I’ll let you know when we do. And I’ll definitely look into the train car site as well.

Old post, but was wondering if you ever found the town underwater? A buddy of mine found it September 2015. I went yesterday to search/see it using his information, but the park was closed due to capacity. I will be going soon again. Here’s his video posted on YouTube for anyone interested in seeing it. youtube.com/watch?v=_QodbCKdQig

Dove Round Valley on 9/4. It was 70 degrees down to 28 feet, 62 degrees at 40 feet and 52 degrees at around 50 feet. Visibility was around 15-30 feet varying at different depths. Found various foundations of the old town. Video: youtube.com/watch?v=4B6YklGShZo
