STP has 2 primary landing areas. The main landing area, a grassy, wide open field, is for jumpers of all levels. There is also a high performance landing area designated for swoopers. Both are an easy walk back to the packing area. Here is an aerial photo of the DZ and the surrounding area: Here is another photo of the landing area, looking toward the West:
STP provides plenty of room for packing in one of several covered, shady, grassy areas. Packers are available most days....there's one now!!
Skydive the Point, established in 1962, is one of the oldest skydiving clubs in the United States. Because we are a club, our objective is to be safe, have fun and continuously improve the DZ.
