Table Rock Lake Dive Locations
Table Rock Lake attracts scuba divers from all over the Midwest because of its wide variety of interesting dive sites and above average water conditions. Lake visibility is usually best in the spring but remains very good by lake standards through September. Water temperatures peak at 85º F on the surface in the summer and average about 60º F at depths below 30 ft. The following are just a few of our favorite dive sites. All sites are close to State Park Dive Shop and easily accessible by our rental dive boats.
Located 1 mile south of the Marina. A nice vertical drop-off with some shallow ledges and interesting rock overhangs. This is a popular spot for boaters and cliff jumpers, so, keep an eye out for lost stuff!
Adjacent to Breezy Point. This underwater ridge starts at Breezy Point and continues east across the main channel at depths approaching 90 ft. The ridge is narrow in spots with visible drop-offs on either side. Topographically unique and visually stunning.
Named for the spoonbill or paddlefish which inhabit the site. This site is located north of Point 2 on the west side of the White River channel. See flat rock tables and find the nice shallow rock slope with trees for good fish-watching cover. Fish are spotted at 3545 ft. Max depth is 100 ft.
Boat wreck dive. This 90 feet long, double-decked excursion boat lies in 7595 feet of water. Find the guideline at 15 feet near shore and follow it down to the boat. A fun dive for more experienced divers. Take a light along with you.
The Enchanted Forest
This site is a rock bluff about 12 miles north of the dam. Descend to 6580 feet and find yourself at the base of a grove of large moss-covered oak trees, some of which break the surface. The silhouettes of the trees against the ambient light above produces a beautiful visual effect. Lots of fish at around 15 feet along the ledge which extends from shoreline about 20 feet. A must-see dive site!
