We enjoyed our day of diving. Next time we will definitely do some camping as well. The walk from the free parking is a bit of a ways, but they do provide carts for your gear.

My son and daughter both took scuba dive certification courses at the Quarry and had a wonderful experience. Dive instructors from across the state use this quarry for training purposes.

I've been to Gilboa Quarry a number of times and the water is normally very clear. Was a bit less so this time, but there were many open water classes there. Even so, it was miles ahead of most other places, since the training platforms...More
