Blakely Mountain Dam of Lake Ouachita....Go over dam to end of the road....only a few parking spaces but stairs lead you down to the water....very small beach that you can put your stuff down. Water depth goes from 5 ft to 25 ft VERY quickly. Left from stairs has rocky edge....I freedived the area on October 2nd 2017. Water was still a nice 81 degrees. Looked for underwater memorial which can be reached from swimming from shore safely...did not see it, but due to unfamiliarity with area, just kind of looked around...water clarity is UNBELIEVABLE. When others see this post, please help the free divers by somehow marking the area with yellow tape in line with where the memorial and other submerged items are...Rumor has it that boats, a 4 wheeler, and a golf cart are all submerged if you go left of the staircase...Just remember when you freedive, you have a limited amount of downtime, so having a better idea where things are underwater being marked on the rocks would sure be nice. This is a perfect site. Did not see any snakes, but around the rocks, I would definitely be careful.
