It's used a lot for training and open water checkouts because there are numerous platforms submerged at 25 - 30 ft. There are also quite a few attractions including a sunken fire truck, Cessna air plane, school bus, Sikorsky helicopter, trolley car, several boats and other assorted vehicles. There are also remnants of some of the quarry equipment.

There are two entry points to this old quarry, but the best follows sunken road and remains shallow -- no more than 20 feet. During the summer and early fall the dive can be done is a shorty wet suit, and the diver is guaranteed to see bluegill, bass and other freshwater fish native to the area. Of course, there are deeper dives -- 100-feet plus -- in much colder water. Along the east shore of the Susquhana River about 10 miles north of Route 30 or 15 miles south of Harrisburg off of Route 441.

This quarry is riddled with lots of sunken objects. Boats, trains, trucks, and lots of old motorcycles. There are convenient lines linking all of the sunken sights so navigation is impossible to lose. At the access, there is a lagoon around 30 feet deep. Then, it drops to the maximum depth of 80 feet. Visibility is much better than most other quarries in the region. Access is quite easy. There are stairs into the water and also a floating dock for a giant stride entry. Very easy access.
