Chatfield State Recreation Area Main Reservior

Geotag Icon Show on map
This is about the deepest spot on the main lake. The depth is about 60 depending on water level. Surface visibility is poor about 5 or less but visibility at the bottom is much better probably greater than 20 . The silt above filters out all of the visible light so dive lights are mandatory even during the day. Bottom is silt and kicks up easy. Occasionally you ll see fish swim by. Boating traffic makes diving here very hazardous. Although the park rangers try and discourage diving in the main lake it is legal as long as you display a dive flag within 50 of the divers. Following an anchor line from a large boat would be the most recommended method of entry and egress. Personally I only dive here to do deep dive certifications or to recover lost objects. Wear a full wetsuit with gloves, boots and a hood or you ll be very uncomfortable.
