Not much to say about Sand Lake. It’s a local lake, and the water won’t make you sick. It’s water, with a max depth of 40 feet, and thanks to an underwater spring that feeds into it, it’s always cold.
The visibility sucks, and we usually regret diving in it. However, it’s a five-minute drive from the shop, and it’s scuba diving in Anchorage.
