We have been to Rocky Gap several times and had a great time every visit. The park has easy to reach boat launches, well marked and easy to navigate hiking trails, lake access with beach area and decent fishing. Tent and RV sites area ample and reasonably private. Roads, and other facilities are well maintained. There are many picnic tables... More

It is a beautiful man made lake. It is an all season place to visit. There are campgrounds and a resort to stay at. Also the State Park has swimming and fishing. There is hiking the whole family can enjoy together.

i grew up going to rocky gap. and we took our kids there every summer for the last 10 years. (kids are 10,7,7) but it has gone down hill. not because the new casino either. which does diminish the "family type feeling." But because it is being trashed by ppl coming from mexico. whites&blacks are the minority for sure. which... More

Rocky Gap State Park is a lovely park. We are here in late April, and the golf course looks well maintained already. The Ash loop for RVs and travel trailers is the only loop with electricity, though larger rigs might have trouble here. There are only two pull-thru sites, one of which (site 8) is curved and has trees close... More

Unfortunately the State Park does the best they can with the Casino taking over the area. What used to be a family oriented place is now, a parking lot in place of the volleyball courts, and no campfire @ the lodge for the families.

This is a good park. Has a nice casino. Has a couple beaches to go swimming. Your aloud to have battery power engines on the lake for your boats. Very nice camp ground. Good fishing. And public hunting. I have it 4 stars because you can't have alcohol while camping. Not a big deal but would be nice if you... More

We were staying at the Rocky Gap Casino Resort and decided to visit the park next door. Since it was late October it was not busy but I can imagine how busy they are when the weather is nice. Very clean and spacious park with some lovely sites overlooking the lake and the mountains in the background. Lots of picnic... More

Overall this is a very nice campground. The costs per night are reasonable. The biggest downfall is that there is only one electric loop. If you are not one of the 29-30 campers to reserve a site well in advance, you are out of luck. This represents only 1/10th of the sites and they don't reserve them for trailers or... More

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.
