Great place to have a deep dive or deep diver training. Slope is mostly at a 45 degree angle. Swam around rocks and witnessed some fish life to boot.

The primary boat ramp is high and dry. However there is another ramp about a few hundred yards upstream. It is accessed by either driving or walking down the primary ramp. Entries and exits can be made by the low water ramp when no boats are around it. Dive flags are advised.
