The Greater Omaha SCUBA Club's favorite local dive site, the Atlantic Quarry in Atlantic, IA, is no longer available to divers so we set out to find some new places to dive. One we found is fairly close to Omaha, Lake 2 at Louisville State Recreation Area in Louisville, NE. Lake 2 has a designated swimming area and beach. Normally scuba divers are required to stay at least 200 ft. away from swimming areas however divers may enter the water to the right of the beach area as per one of the park rangers. A dive flag float is required. Fish sightings in the lake have included lots of catfish, blue gill, crappie, largemouth and smallmouth bass, and carp. Visibility has been up to 10-15 ft. A Nebraska State Park permit is required.
