While many divers wouldn't look toward the Mid-Atlantic for a quality diving location, Lake Rawlings provides suprises for those seeking something different in their adventures. With a maximum depth of 65 feet, warm water, and good visibility (30 to 60 feet), the lake has many wonders to explore. From I-95, north of the Lake (Richmond, VA; Maryland; Pennsylvania) Take I-95 south to Exit 51, I-85 South (near Petersburg). Take Exit 39 Rawlings and turn right towards the Nottoway Inn. After 0.2 miles, at the "T" intersection, turn left onto Route 1 South. After 1 mile, at the dive flag sign, turn right onto Rawlings Rd/Route 629. After 1.4 miles, turn right onto Quarry Lane (dirt road). Follow Quarry Lane straight to the main gate! From I-95, north of the Lake (alternate route) We know traveling from Washington, DC or the Baltimore, MD area can be frustrating. Consider this alternate route. From the outer beltway (I-495) take Route 5 South to US 301 South. Exit US 301 South at I-295 South. Exit I-295 South at Route 10 heading west. After 5 miles, take I-95 South.
