Went with my sons and one of their friends on a three night camping trip. Had never camped in Maryland before. We were very surprised to find the camping pad made of gravel. Certainly did not expect that, very rough on the tent floor even...More

My family thoroughly enjoyed the park. Beautiful scenery, well maintained. I was surprised though to see flamingos wading in the lake. Not a northern bird. But a delight to watch.

This park is AMAZING! We had the most beautiful cabin—close to Wisp Ski area. No WiFi and pretty remote—all forested sites. SO reasonable for a high-end cabin with water/electric—sleeps 6 ($70/night). Plenty of cheaper, rustic camping options as well!😁. Wood stove in every cabin, and...More

Enjoyed a visit on a trip to Deep Creek. Has a nice swimming area and some walking trails to enjoy, We did not rent a cabin, but that was a possibility. A good place to stretch your legs to break up a long drive.

This state park has about 10 cabins for rent, a nice beach and some semi primative camping spots. Nice picnic area and playground.
