Me and DUI Diver will be diving at Stillhouse Sunday morning about 8:00 AM. I know it’s early, but we both live within 30 minutes from the lake and it gives us time to get in two to three dives by noon. You’re more than welcome to join us. Just let me know.

Stillhouse Hollow Lake is located between Belton and Ft Hood (Closer to Belton) off of Hwy 190. It is a resevoir that was constructed, I believe, in 1964. There is a scuba park located near the marina. Maximum depth in the scuba park is 66 ft. (at the bottom of the old Lampasas River channel). In the park there are also a couple of sunken boats (homes to a rather large catfish and a humongous drum fish, both very teritorial) and what remains of a water pump station that existed prior to the dam being built and the valley flooded. Visability varies, much like most lakes. I’ve seen it at a foot and as good as 15 ft. There was a dive shop at the marina but it has been put up for sale. I would recommend bringing a few tanks. I plan on making at least 2 dives, maybe three.
