Cedar Valley Quarry is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in Tipton, IA. This dive site has an average rating of 3.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 71-80ft/22-24m. The average visibility is 11-15ft/3-5m. Training platforms are available.

I did my open water checkout dives at Cedar Valley Quarry, which is near Tiption, IA. It is nothing spectacular, just a flooded limestone quarry adjacent to the Cedar River, with nothing more than a crude outhouse for amenities. To my knowledge, it is badly silted and no longer open to SCUBA diving.

I remember there being a few pieces of submerged machinery, a small motor boat, a Ford coupe car body, and lots of beer cans at this site.
