I was there in June 2007. We had a little trouble finding it because it is not particularly well marked. We were tent camping and the sites were pretty nice. There was water and electric at several of them also. The quarry has all kinds of things for divers to look at. There's an airplane with a skeleton in the cockpit, tractor trailer, cars, trucks, boats quarry equipment etc. In June the air temp was about 80 degrees. Water temp was about 75 degrees and there was a definite thermocline at 15 feet at which time the temp dropped to about 65 degrees. And there were other thermoclines also. It was a nice area. Nice little dive shop on the premises and the people that were running it were also very nice.
