Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Lake Millbrook
This is the local dive site for divers in Northern Virginia. It is an inland fresh water lake that was formed from a flooded quarry. Various ships, air planes, and other structures have been sunk for diver's use. Local dive shops conduct the whole gamut of training here. You must have a c-card to get in, so there are no fishermen, boats, or snorkelers. From Rt 66 in Virginia, take exit 40 for US 15 South. Take US 15 South to the traffic light at VA 55. Take a right on to VA 55 West. Continue of VA 55 approximately 3.6 miles. Millbrook's entrance will be on your left, immediately after crossing Broad Run. The entrance is marked by a gate and a barrel with a dive flag painted on it. If you arrive before opening, you will also see a line of cars extending both east and west from the gate. Admission passes are $30.00 at the gate or $18.00 at a local dive shop. The lake is privately owned, but used by the local SCUBA crowd. It is open weekends, closed weekdays seasonally. Divers can camp overnight from June 2 through Labor Day for $5 extra per person. There are several beaches around the lake where divers can enter the water.
