While staying at the casino and it was right next door we went there. Nestled in the mountains this place is a great retreat all year round. Since it's winter it was free to get in this time of year. No matter the time of year it is a photographic experience. It's great to watch the clouds fly over and... More

This park is beautiful and has a lovely trail wrapping around the lake. This park would make for a fun day for all ages.

We stayed at the resort/casino this past weekend and decided to enjoy what may be the last of the 60's weather by walking the Lakeside Loop trail which was a little much for us (4.9 miles).It's a beautiful walk around the lake and state park property and was worth it-just go more prepared than we did (Take some snacks or...

Rocky Gap State Park is just off I-68 in a scenic mountain valley six miles east of Cumberland. The views of the rolling hills, the dam, and Lake Habeeb would be nicer without the blight of a casino on the SW shore. To answer other reviewers, I don't know of a single state park that actually makes money off entrance... More

We were introduced to the park due to a gift certificate for the Rocky Gap Resort. The park was beautiful with fall color. We enjoyed walking the entire lake loop, took us 2 1/2 hours. Wear good walking shoes. Saw no wildlife except water fowl. Due to the time of the year no camping was happening but the facilities looked... More

We spent the weekend at the Casino (not camping...thankfully...the temps dropped into the 30's at night). The leaves had not yet turned/peaked but it was my 1st time there and it was very nice. We hiked around the Lakeside Loop, hiked up Evitt's Trail to the gorge and had snacks and biked around the camp grounds. Fresh air, beautiful scenery...I... More

I love the trails. After working at the hospital, it is a nice run. The outer loop is a little longer than the inner, but it is nice even after a terrible rain. It wasn't to muddy, and the wildlife was abundant. I even was within 20 feet of a doe and 2 little fawns still with spots. A beautiful... More

very clean and well maintained park! Beautiful views, great place for hiking and fishing. If you love the outdoors, you'll love it her and if you would rather be indoors, there is a great casino.

This was our first visit to Rocky Gap. Decided to hike around the lake before playing a round of golf nearby. Supposedly a 5-mile trek. Definitely glad we wore our sturdy hiking shoes! The loop is closer to seven miles and if we do it again we'd start at the Lodge and go counter clockwise for about two miles. Then... More
