We are open WINTER HOURS Nov 1st-March 30th BY RESERVATION ONLY.  For park entry booking see our website!  The Scuba Ranch, formerly known as Clear Springs Scuba Park, opened June 15, 2001.  As of May 2018 we are under new management and changes/updates are continuing to be made.  We are a family owned and operated recreational scuba facility, and offer a 22 acre spring-fed lake that has one of the most beautiful, natural habitats seen in a fresh-water Texas Lake.  Underwater attractions and wildlife are awaiting your exploration!  Also, we're home to the "largest freshwater shark in North America", Sisco the Shark!  We are dedicated to scuba diving, and aspire to make The Scuba Ranch the premier open diving facility in North Texas!

Great place to go for dive. They have several entry docks and dive platforms to practice up on your skills . There are plenty of points of interest to get your navigation down. Book an Rv site and stay the weekend.

Kyle Davie

Known as an excellent scuba training facility, the Scuba Ranch is also the perfect place to get away and look at the stars. The staff is outstanding and while the primary operation is scuba instruction, they continue to invest in the property and expand the RV campgrounds. They provide 30/50AMP and water hookups and have a dump station on site. It is better than the state parks for those that enjoy scuba diving and their ‘support’ families.

Yay! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this great review!

Scuba Ranch staff and amenities where great! very friendly, and refills where quick! Viz was not the best, maybe algae bloom going on? Can't wait until next trip-

Rachel Ford

As always LOVED staying here!! The cabin is massive, has air conditioning to allow you to be at the comfort level you choose, and has plenty of outlets to charge phones, use CPAP machines, etc. it is very flexible as well - we bring an inflatable mattress due to spinal issues and sleep on that rather than the provider cots, and there’s plenty of room for the 6 cots and our bed in the cabin. The cabin is clean, and has a vacuum and garbage bin should you need to clean up crumbs or anything else. Most importantly the hosts are among the kindest people on earth!

Trim the trees so I don’t have to drag my roof mounted accessories and paint to get to the spot!!! Only negative about these spots. Otherwise. Clean, convenient and enjoyable!! Thanks.

Glen Collier

Wonderful place to camp with water and electric hookups and a dump station that is nice and clean on the way out. We had a relaxing fun weekend of camping and scuba diving with friends. The Scuba Ranch personnel are very helpful and friendly for anything you might need. This is our favorite place to camp!

Tom Passmore

The ranch is clean and well organized. We camped in RV, in August. Water and electric at site. And shade. Docks are well maintained for entry to lake. My only complaint is the water was very cloudy and couldn’t see my buddy. I felt clostophobic and got out of water. Then snorkel around lake. Rented a tank for nothing.

Campground Response

I'm so sorry you had this experience...normally visibility is better than it has been recently. We are committed to not treating the lake with chemicals to conserve the wildlife and natural environment...but with that comes cycles just like the weather. The water level has been so low from the drought, that alone will make it worse. Usually these cycles take care of themselves with time. Hopefully next time you come back it will be better!

It a pet friendly, cool, clean small part of a 737 fuselage with terrific hosts and staff. The SR team had a concession stand open this past weekend with the best nachos & Frito pies w/ jalapenos! The small cabin is furnished with 2 Coleman cots, window A/C, plus 4 electrical outlets next to the A/C . It is absolutely perfect when diving is the focus. We bring a foldable table, 2 ultralight chairs, propane burner for the skillet, collapsible electric kettle, food & beer coolers, Igloo 5 Gal water dispenser & our Catahoula mix for our Scuba Camping in the 737. Bathrooms include a port-a-potty maybe 50 yards and restrooms/ warm showers up at the entrance.(showers usually have a body soap, shampoo and conditioner.) All the divers, shops & clubs are usually friendly & helpful, but DIVER NOTE - Most Pavilions are Private but all the Docks are also for the Paying Public, just be courteous & wait or swim to the next dock if there are classes in session on the original dock.

This was a great experience. After a small power issue before we arrived, the staff worked hard to move everyone around and accomodate everyones needs. Couldn't ask for a better experience. The owners really care about the guest experience.

Took my family here for my daughter's 21st birthday. Spent 4 nights in our R.V and did alot of diving both day and night. Absolutely love the scuba ranch. Owners are awesome folks that make you feel at home. Grounds are clean, quite, comfortable and family friendly. One of our new favorite places to dive. Do your self a favor, if you ain't been to scuba ranch; GO.

Campground Response

Yay! So glad to hear you guys had a great time! Happy Birthday to your daughter and hope to see you soon!

Robert Williams

The owners and staff were incredibly nice, accommodating and helpful. The camping was great and accessibility for getting into the water was also wonderful. Other than needing a few more things to see on the bottom this is probably my favorite Scuba park destination!!!
