Devil’s Lake State Park
Devil’s Lake is not only well-known for above-water activities like camping, hiking, rock climbing, and mountain biking, it is also great for underwater activities such as underwater photography, night diving, and marine life observation. Below the surface of Devil’s Lake divers will encounter large boulders, fallen trees, and many species of fish such as bass, walleye, bluegills, carp, croppies, and crawfish. Facilities include a campground and numerous picnic areas.
IMPORTANT: A Wisconsin State Park sticker is required for entry into the park. Generally diving at Devil’s Lake is done on the east side of the lake along the railroad tracks. Diving can be done from the south end of the lake, but divers will need to carry their gear a considerable distance from the parking lot to the lake. Some diving is also possible along the west side of the lake, but divers will need to exercise care crossing the road and entering the water.
Maximum depth: 45 feet
Temperatures: Range from the mid 70s during the summer to the low 30s in winter. A 7mm wetsuit is generally sufficient protection for most divers from May through October.
