Does anyone know how to get a POC for this site? My son and I will be traveling from Memphis and we just want to make sure they are open.

Real close to home so its nice to go dive and practice skills. There is a lot to see in this quarry like a Phantom jet and a space lab. They are not open this year which is sad! Hopefully they will open back up next year.

Hubby, son, friend and I were here yesterday (8/8/09). They are a bit primitive as far as facilities go, but the water is easily accessible and the staff was friendly. I have some pics I will download later. Parking was a bit tight but the quarry is moderately large. You park at the bottom of a hill, so there is no downhill trek as w/ a lot of the local dive sites, however tank refills require a car ride back up the hill. The visibility was pretty decent and they have quite a bit to see including a sunken missle and a small bridge and quite a few fish.

They have 2 floating access points and getting in and out is very easy. They also had someone set up making burgers, and selling drinks. They do have a changing room, but no flush toilets. I only saw one portajohn, but there may have been more. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.
