  • Awesome! The water is freezing! I recommend you make sure its a very hot day with almost no clouds! The water is so clean and clear! It has a pretty blue tint to it as well, there is a natural spring coming out of the bedrock that you can pay to dive into! Absolutely beautiful! There is also a gift 9th shop where you can buy t shirts, necklaces, flip flops and other novelties as well as snacks and supplies. There are rest rooms available and cabins you can rent and there are multiple big floating decorations the kids can climb on and play with, there is a huge slide that is so fun it just never gets old! The water is freezing! I recommend you make sure its a very hot day with almost no clouds!
  • I was not excited about going there at first. Due to the cold temperature of the water. Once I was there I saw what nice grounds and a facility they had. I St rated to lile the place already. Suited up, jumped in and yes it was cold but only for a minute or 2. Then I had a great time scuba diving. What a great place to go to and really clean water.
  • Outstanding place... $550 For dive classes if you're interested in being taught and certified. It's like a play ground for snorkeling and diving... and there isn't an "attitude lines between the two activities... the divers welcome in the folks that are just swimming and snorkeling. The restrooms are sub par but functional in the right locations in the camp ground. Absolutely enjoyed out weekend here and will defiantly be back
  • Awesome dive spot, also nice place to camp. Full rv hook ups as well as primitive camp sites. Also have cabins. Place to swim, with a rope swing.
  • I found this place by accident, because my dogs weren't welcome at Morrison Springs. But these people welcomed us and turned our frown upside down. What a great day! Diving! Swimming! Slides! Camping! Charming people! This place is definitely in my top 5 accidental discoveries. The world should know, people should stop here.😀
