Dive Site Description: easy access near the swimming area to the left of the boat ramp. at the end of the picnic areas is a staircase into the water, which might be good if there are a lot of swimmers.
underwater contour is gradual with a silty bottom. we worked our way north away from the boat ramp and main body of the lake. several tree stumps and logs, a few fish and that's about it.
viz (mid-june) was 5' below 25-30ffw, but 15'+ above. temps 64 near the surface and a noticeable thermocline at about 20' dropping the temp to the mid-50s.
definitely a good site for students and practicing. maybe more interesting stuff to see in other profiles.
