Great lake views, hiking trails, stand up paddle board and kayak rentals at the lodge. Such a beautiful place. Casino is nearby with some good restaurants with outdoor seating too. Worth a trip. A little piece of heaven in Allegany County.

On our first family camping trip with a toddler, I expected a 1970's older cabin and restroom facilities. What a surprise! The campground is gated with pin code security at the front gate and each cabin has a punch pad lock -no keys needed. Each site has a nice picnic table, fire pit, and spacious parking area. We stayed near... More

The hotel is nice but nothing extraordinary, but the entire park all rolled into one is a very nice destination for a few days away. The trail around the park is awesome for runners or hikers and the likelihood is you will see wildlife everywhere including black bears. Rocky Gap is just a beautiful in the winter as well.

I have young children who can't/won't do tough hikes, so I always appreciate places where I can readily see a beautiful view without having to drag the reluctant kids up a mountain trail. This place is very pretty and just a walk along the lake shore is all that is needed to get many different views of water framed by... More

We just returned from a wonderful 5 day stay at Rocky Gap. Our cabin on the Gap loop was clean and comfortable and, most importantly, kept us snug and dry during two rainstorms. My husband & I thought the double bed mattress was pretty thin, so we bought extra padding. The kids' bunk bed was actually more comfortable than ours.... More

Camped here last fall and absolutely loved it. Quiet, nice campsite, close to a good restroom, and very close to town.

Very convenient combination of golf, scenic waterfront, and casino! Buffet was a good value and view at Lakefront was very nice.

We have hiked & swam here. Enjoyed both. Really do wonder how clean the water is though, rather concerning. Have ate at rest. up near the hotel here also. The food was just normal with high prices. Wished snack area near beach would have been open. Another poster said it was $6 per person, it is not. It is $6... More

The short trail around the lake was about 5.75 miles and my 10 and 7 y/o girls were able to make it..spray some insect repellent though, the campsite was great, we're close to the clean bathroom and water supply, kayaking and swimming in a cool water is fun but the lake is not good for fishing because there's a lot...
