More Information

Willow Springs gate opens at 8:00 AM.   (We ask that those schools who have the code to open the gate do not do so without prior approval.)  No students will be admitted prior to 8:00 AM.

Willow Springs Lake Park is a gated, private property.  There is no access to the park until the stated entry time.

All members and day pass divers must have a signed waiver, dated for the day of diving, and check in with the on-site staff BEFORE entry to the water.  All certified divers must present their certification card for approval.

Parking space in general is limited so please carpool if possible.  All parking must be in the designated parking areas.  There will be no parking in the grass area by the Lake.  It is reserved for diver tent setups for sun and rain coverage and table set ups.

Certified assistants/divemasters and all other divers must park in the stone lot to the right side of the entrance past the pond.  They will be directed to do so when they check in and submit waivers to the office staff.

Parking for instructors will be lake side and will be assigned.  A car/trailer tag will be issued to the lead instructor/owner upon check in with office staff.  They are dated and non-reusable.

On days where heavy attendance is expected, we will have staff outside to control traffic.  Please be patient and follow their instructions though delays should be expected.  The majority of people tend to arrive right at 8:00 when the gates open, and this will create unavoidable backlogs of traffic between people going down to drop gear and those trying to return to the gravel parking lot.

BBQ Grills are allowed but all coals must be removed by the person responsible for the grill.

There are 3 porta-toilets available, two by the lake side and one by the office building.  There is NO running water on the property.

We have opened a small retail store inside the office.  This will be stocked with accessories, but not actual gear. We do offer air fills and tank rentals at the office.  Please check with staff upon arrival should you need either service.
