Our crystal clear waters are home to the ancient and extraordinary paddlefish, among other aquatic wildlife. Since coming under new management in the summer of 2014, we have been hard at work improving both our on-site and online amenities.

Had a great dive, saw big catfish, huge brim, nice size bass, some odd and end Christmas/halloween holiday decorations, a boat, the shark prop, and then turned in to the heart of the quarry at around 35' to see the paddle fish it was a total of 48 minute dive. Good visibility 82° at surface temperature, it is colder at depth but was 68° at the coldest spot at 47' so above the theromcline you can get by with a 2 piece 5mm wetsuit and below the theromcline you will need 7mm wetsuit or dry suit. Out side toilets and air available on site.

My favorite quarry and staff. Had great time and place was a bit rustic as they build up from last owners. Good air nice underwater props and a place to camp for multi day dive trips. Lots of fish turtles and plant life. Cold at bottom need 7mm hood gloves for comfort there but it's worth it.

There are several places to dive locally here in East Tennessee but for the facilities, area, and generally good visibility Loch Low Minn has it all. I'm an instructor and this is the only place I take my students and one of the few places I frequent locally for fun dives.

There is ample parking bathroom facilities near the entry point, newer picnic tables and plenty of them and a nice level road going down to the water. The owner has some great plans for 2016 as well.
