My Review 

Mammoth Lake Scuba Park is a 55 acre lake that has been set-up for diver by divers. There are 32 palvilions for divers to relax between dives in the shade during there surface intervals. This site includes more than 80 wrecks with boats from small jon boats to a 60' Rum Runner sail boat. There are fire trucks, 18 wheelers, buses, metal sculptures and the biggest attraction is a C-130 cargo plane. Aquatic life includes perch, bass, catfish, paddlefish, turles, and many other small fish.

They have a full service dive shop on site with sells, rentals, air fills, repair center, guided dives, and training. There is an area for primative. Divers are welcome to bring grill to cook out or dine and the cafe on site.

The future plans include a bathing. As well as many more attractions.

Be sure you check out their FaceBook page.
