Dirty Shirt

Dirty Shirt

To get to Dirty Shirt, drive past South Park Rd. (the road you turn on to get to Desert Tortoise). After you loop around on that road and start heading towards the lake again you'll see a road on the left. That goes to Dirty Shirt. It's easy to miss because you almost...

Beismeyer Point

Beismeyer Point

One of my favorite sites. Biesmeyer Point looks like old “Sparky” the ASU Sun Devil (my alma mater). Head with horns. Off the right horn (east) there is a road that goes underwater and comes up about 3/4 of a mile away. When the water is high, the deepest depth is...

Spill ways

Spill ways

The spillways are just to the west of the 10 lane boat ramp. It's kind of an unofficial campground for people with travel trailers and RVs because it is cement. There are two, one dirt, one cement.

Spring Canyon Landing

Spring Canyon Landing

East of Vista Point [also known as sunrise Cove] The spring canyon area would be optimal for an OW student as that cove has at least 200' of length between 10 - 25' in depth before it drops off. This is not good for AOW if you going to do a deep dive because you burn...

Vista point

Vista point

The old topo above is before the old 1922 dam was breached. As you can see, Vista Point is roughly in the shape of a dogs head (in red current shore line). “The Trench” (in yellow), is a ravine that ran down to the river. The dark lines are 100’ apart, each line 20’....

“1702” Site

“1702” Site

The 1702 marker is a deep wall dive. A few weekends ago, I did a wall dive at the "1702" site. I could be wrong, supposed to be a little wreck at the bottom of the sign (120'+) and some little caves in the wall on the way down. It's at the north end of the lake, the...

Old Waddell Dam

Old Waddell Dam

The old dam is easy to find with a dept finder. Just come out north about 700 yards from new dam, look at both sides of the lake (when the water is low), line up the two hills that made the old embutments and you are there. When the lake is up, the top of the dam will...
