We drove up to Athens, TX for the weekend to dive at Athens Scuba Park. We called ahead to reserve tanks and find out more about the park. We arrived at the park first thing Saturday morning. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were able to drive up close to the dock to drop off our gear,... More

Drove to Athens Scuba Park for a day of diving to make sure all of our gear worked properly before a trip to Bonaire. When we arrived, they said the viz might be around 10 feet or so due to the rain the week or two before. We decided 10 feet was tolerable and we geared up to dive. What... More

From the moment we entered the easy to find park the staff was friendly and welcoming! Water was warm, with plenty of underwater attractions to happen upon while diving. Kept our attention for two tanks each. Facilities were clean and kept up. Wash racks for equipment were greatly appreciated! Bathrooms with fully stocked showers were great since we had a... More

My wife and I enjoy diving at Athens Scuba Park. We have gone a few times a year for a handful of years now. The diving is pretty simple. Docks from your camp/day site. Lots of submerged items/gear/vehicles to explore. Good dive shop, bathrooms and changing rooms. The viz gets bad sometimes but hey it's a small lake in Texas...get... More

Athens Scuba Park is a great place to practice your diving skills. They have several things underwater to dive around. There are no fish in this scuba park and sometimes can be very murky. Practice your wreck penetration and log some time!

We decided to take a family dive weekend in Athens, Tx. We heard about the park from our Dive Shop. We were there in August, the water level was very low due to the drought . The water was like bath water, the visibility was very low, the silt was about a foot deep. It was good to check out... More

This is the perfect place to dive. It seems remote, but is only a half block off of main street. It has everything you could possibly want. Training platforms, wrecks, and even a cave system. The staff is amazing and could not be more helpful. It is also really cheap to dive there!! Air fills are only $5 and gear... More

Athens Scuba Park Trip Report: Park will NOT fill tanks older than 1992. Viz: 15-20 feet, after park closes and less people, viz obviously increases. Water hovered at/around 71 degrees. Depth was no more than 22 feet, bottom is clay, so stay off!! From Dell Diamond it was aprox. 3 hour drive. Camping is great, with showers, and bathroom (1).... More

This was an amazing lake to dive in. We had such a blast! The wrecks that they have sunk are unbelievable! We swam through over 30 wrecks while we were there. They have two 60 ft jets that were so interesting to look at! I highly recommend staying a weekend down there. Great fun for the whole family!

The park was really cool and I had a great time! They have over 35 underwater sunken wrecks such as jets, dart busses, house boat, cabin cruisers, and a whole lot more!! The visibility varies due to the amount of people that have been in the lake that day but it was around 15-20 when we went for the first... More
