Crusty’s is outside of Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, less than three miles from the Prime Outlet Mall in Grove City, nestled right below Interstate 79. The eight-acre spring-fed lake was formed more than 50 years ago. Its origin is unknown but some locals believe the site was mined for sand and gravel needed to build I-79. A blanket of green vegetation extends below 20 feet, providing structure and refuge for the abundance of naturally occurring aquatic life.
Underwater attractions include several boats, a 60-passenger bus, two automobiles, a treasure chest, a replicated pirate cannon, and two training platforms 20 feet (6 m) below the surface. New attractions are added every year. There is a floating dock with stairs on one end and a boat ladder on the other. Divers can giant-stride into the lake and then easily climb back onto the dock. A gradual sloped shore entry is also available.
