02/27/2011 Doug Freeman (Avg: 2.82 Review) - Always a nice dive site and well established. The visibility of the lake is getting better. Suffered a bit due to strong winds. Main items to see are the freshwater fish life (you have to like green) and the boulders from the rock walls. I dive this lake once a year.

07/09/2010 Anonymous (Avg: 3.95 Review) - While visiting family in Wisconsin, I stopped by Devils Lake for a dip off the north shore. Viz was much better than I expected at about 20-25 feet, though became worse if my dive buddy and I got too close to the bottom and kicked up the sediment. I normally dive in Florida, where I live, and had very low expectations for this dive, but I'd come back if I were visiting again. Most interesting were the very abundant and inquisitive fish: they seemed to have no fear of us and came right up to our masks, checking us out. Saw at least four varieties of fish (sorry I am not a fresh water fish expert, so unsure of exactly what they were, though some looked like bass and others like sunfish) and freshwater snails. Someone placed a 'directional' sign with arrows showing distances to Cozumel, Roatan and a couple of other diving sites at about 20 feet of depth: very funny. The boulders and freshwater grasses also create interesting 'architecture' on the lake floor. We went no deeper than 25 feet and temps were mid-70's to low 80's in early July 2010. Again, if I return to the area anytime soon, I will dive this place again. One note: 3 Devil's dive shop in Baraboo has closed so you'll need to get tanks in Madison. I picked up mine at Fontana's off of Mineral Point Rd. on the west side of town.

01/16/2007 Nate Whitehead (Avg: 4.08 Review) - One of Wisconsin's best!!

08/17/2005 KJ (Avg: 3.99 Review) - Good diving to 30 feet and near the shoreline. Great rock formations near the shore, but not much to see in the center of the lake. Three Little Devils dive shop and the state park all around make it a very easy place to set up a weekend.

10/09/2004 Dani Pence (Avg: 3.16 Review) - I had never been lake diving before, but my sister-in-law thought I should try it while I was visiting. We were able to enter the water without too much effort, and to my amazement, I actually saw Bass! I had been fishing for them in Florida, but I've never seen them in their natural habitat just cruising around. Pretty curious creatures, so it was a lot of fun. I still prefer ocean diving, but any excuse to get wet is a good one.

06/29/2004 Andrew Miller (Avg: 3.31 Review) - Very cool! Lots of boulders and large mouth bass. Pick up a crayfish and feed the bass right out of your hand. Awesome night diving. For more info go to 3littledevils.com
