As far as water clarity, this is the best vis I've seen in any inland lake other than lake Michigan.

I have been diving there on a regular basis since I was first certified. Wazee is a fantastic lake for beginners especially, but still holds interest for more advanced divers. If you are looking for wildlife, you probably won't have the best time. Although there are fish in the lake, I have rarely seen anything below 60 feet. But the fish cribs by the shores can be a lot of fun to hang around just to check out all of the curious sunnys and bass. There are many interesting geological features to look at, from gently sloping hills to sheer walls and cliffs. Overall I really think that it is an enjoyable dive, which is why I will continue to go there

Had a nice time at site 2. Diving the wall down to just over 100 ft was great. From site 2, you can reach 100 feet by being only 40 yards or so off shore. I hear the forest on the other side of the Lake is an enjoyable experience.

I did my trimix training here. Vis was around 60 feet. Very clear, but very cold. Bottom temps were around 36 F. Most of the dive were right off the ramp (can't remember the site number) We went down a marker about 75 yards off shore, staging gear on the nice sand was great too. I hit 233 a little past Jimmy Hoffa. The wall on the far side is a great dive as well. Very large. It starts about 60 and goes down to 200 or so. You swim along it and prob never see the start or end. This is a awesome place for tech training. Buy the book at the ranger station for some good insider info on the dives spots. Dive safe.

Wazee was great. This was my first dive past 30ft and it was bright visibility and about 20+ft. Water Temp at 67ft was about 40. Had fun and will go again.
