Remnants of the mining operation still remain visible underwater and divers often find artifacts. Massive boulders and sheer cliff faces create challenging and interesting features for the more experienced recreational diver. Novice divers will enjoy the gradually descending roadways, which are found throughout the quarry and may encounter several groups of fish cribs. Beach lovers will enjoy the sand beach area and the clear water for swimming. Anglers can fish for popular game fish as walleye, crappies and bass.
