    I posted this in the South Eastern section of Scubaboard but I have had no responses. Maybe someone here can help. I will be relocating to Asheville, NC in the next couple of months. I am wondering where people dive in Western NC. Are there local lakes that shops use for training or do you have to drive somewhere away from WNC?

    There are no lakes in Western NC that people do dive training in? It doesn't seem right that everyone that gets certified in WNC would have to drive several hours just to finish their cert. I know there are some lakes in WSC (Jocassee and Keowee) that are only a couple of hours away but I was hoping for something closer.

    You may try googling for any dive clubs/shops in the general area to find local contacts who could answer your question. Wish I could help more, but I've never been there.

    There are lakes close to Asheville. Even more if willing to drive a bit further. Contact me and I can give you some info on several and let you make your choice where to go.

    did you ask in the nc wreck divers section?

    if you did, i'm sorry you didn't get answers. i was gone last week & don't know what happened to others. if you didn't, try there too. we're usually pretty good about keeping an eye on questions & posts there.

    i can't really answer, since i live in the total other end of the state 8 hrs away. :(

    Digging this thread from the grave since it has Lake Chatuge mentioned. Has anyone dove Lake Chatuge? If so, where's the spots to go diving on the lake?
