  1. Here are my notes on the dives I've done in Stillhouse Hollow Lake, specifically Stillhouse Park, in Belton, TX. The rankings are relative to other green-water diving in Texas (not blue water). Feel free to post comments, opinions, questions, etc., including your dives there. Updated: 14NOV2013 Click here to see current lake level. Accessibility: good, even if the lake is down, it's usually less than 20' with gentle slopes to walk down to the water (no need for stairs or rock climbing like at Travis) Cost: good, entrance to Stillhouse Park (USAR Corps of Engineers park, only one I've been to) is free if you tell the gate you're going to the marina Visibility: poor to good, typically 2'-8' (has some of the best visibility in Texas lakes, but rain or algae growth can reduce to near zero) Variety of Sites: good Wildlife: good, mostly typical sunfish, bass and catfish, and I've seen schools of white bass and several large blue drum. There's a lot more plant life than in Lake Travis. Sites ('obstacles' means things to see, swim through, etc.): Stillhouse Hollow Lake Shore Dives Marina/Island View Pavilion, Stillhouse Hollow Lake, Belton - 11 dives, latest May 2012; facilities: good; there's a dive shop, restroom and resteraunt at the marina obstacles: good; the dive shop has placed platforms, wrecks and other stuff with lines between them, and there are some old water plant structures that are interesting (SE of the entrance) overall equivalent to Travis but more life, less people and easier access, dive shop on the marina pier Scuba Divers Paradise Pier, Stillhouse Hollow Lake, Belton - 3 dives, latest October 2012; facilities: excellent; there's a dive shop, restroom and resteraunt at the marina obstacles: moderate; the dive shop has placed items under the marina with lines between them overall equivalent to Travis but more life,less people and easier access, dive shop right there on the marina pier; you must be careful when surfacing, because there is boat traffic into and out of the marina! Stillhouse Hollow Lake Boat Dives I haven't done a boat dive in Stillhouse Hollow, yet. I know that Scubadiver's Paradise does do them, especially to get to the 'advanced' dive site that is deeper than 60'.
