Millbrook Quarry is Under New Management!
We Appreciate your patience while we are making changes/improvements to the information below, and
Lake Millbrook.


Lake Millbrook is located about 3 miles from the Rt55 and Rt15 intersection in Haymarket, Virginia. It is about 15 minutes from Manassas and Coral Edge Adventures, and about an hour from Winchester. Lake Millbrook is operated by Coral Edge Adventures in Catharpin, VA and is NOW OPEN from April to November with winter dives done 2 weekends per month in the off-season. It is only open to diver's and their guests.

The quarry is surrounded by three entrance areas or "beaches". Each "beach" has multiple training platforms situated at 30 feet. These platforms are suspended by four large surface buoys. Aside from the platforms there are several sunken attractions as well. At 70 feet rests an airplane, at 80 feet rests a Winnebago, and there are also several sunken boats. The rocky drop off makes for a cool wall to look at rock formations.

The "beaches" are being renamed as follows:
Beach 1 is now Sunset Breach
Beach 21/2 is now Adventure Wall
Beach 3 is now Omaha Beach, opening summer 2017
