Deep Creek Lake
A Great Place to Relax . . . .  
                 . . . . A Great Place to be Active

Deep Creek Lake is a great place to come and relax. But if you want activity, there is plenty to do. There is boating in the summer and skiing in the winter. There are tours and white water rafting, ATV rides through the woods, golf and mini golf, go carts, bumper boats, arcades, horseback riding, and much more. At least 8 movies are playing at the Garrett 8 Cinemas at any given time. State parks such as Swallow Falls and Savage River dot the area. At a state park or on a private trail you breathe of fresh mountain air as you see nature up-close and personal.

Not more than an hour away by car you'll find Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Waters and Kentucky Knob homes in Pennsylvania; the unique geology of Waffle Rock at Jennings Randolph Lake in West Virginia; the Scenic Western Maryland Railroad, the Thrasher Carriage Museum and Fallinger's Hotel Gunter in Frostburg; and the C&O Canal and the Transportation & Industry Museum in Cumberland. You can even take a scenic airplane ride over the lake from the Cumberland Regional Airport.

Back at the lake you'll find the towns of McHenry, Thayersville, Green Glade, Hazelhurst and McComas Beach nestled in various coves. Marinas, shops and restaurants dot the area, with old-town Oakland, the county seat of Garrett County, full of shops, restaurants, and history just a few minutes south of the lake.

Lake Facts

The 3900-acre Deep Creek Lake with 65 miles of shoreline is nestled in the Allegheny Mountains 2466 feet above sea level just west of the eastern continental divide. Green forested slopes rise all around to peaks in excess of 3000 feet.

In the summer in Garrett County, it is significantly cooler than in the surrounding lowlands. In the winter, the snow and the cold is just what skiers want. Because of the elevation, Spring arrives a little later and the forests shine with brilliant green. Autumn comes a little earlier, and the foliage is a riot of red and gold with russet and tan.
