The lake consists of two parts - a 15-acre lake for surfers and anglers and an 11-acre lake for divers and swimmers. There is also a water ski cable car on the diving and bathing lake, in the area of ​​which you are not allowed to dive. There are buoys and information signs under the water. At the bottom of the lake there are fixed pinetrees in which fish can hide. In addition to fish (perch, freshwater cod and pike) you can also observe crayfish, which speaks for the good water quality. For dives deeper than 10 meters a lamp should be taken, it gets dark quickly.
Very interesting for (wet) divers: There are hot showers. :-)
Important: A certification card and a compass must be carried, otherwise there is no diving permit given out.
