There is no fee for parking. There is no fee to get into the park. The cost is limited to food/gas/air fill.

Directions to the dive site:
GPS Coordinates:40°58’02.79”N 75°07’18.27”W
Head NORTH from PA Bagel and Deli for about 3.5-4 miles. The parking Lott will be on your LEFT. There is a pull-off on the RIGHT hand side of the road. Some people may want to park on the shoulder as it will not require divers to cross the road in full dive gear. If no shoulder space – park in the parking lot.
