The lake is large. There is a nice state park with a beach for swimming. They rent things like kayaks.

After hiking, swimming, boating, whitewater rafting and golfing I was exhausted after a week in Deep Creek. We were there over the July 4th holiday and had a great time. There is something to do for everyone. We had family from 4yrs to 75 yrs and all had a good time.

Beautiful lake at the base of a beautiful mountain. Skiing, boating , fishing. Quiet which might not be a favorite of teenagers who are looking for mega entertainment. Not a lot of restaurants or commercial things, but peaceful and a place to recharge your batteries! Oh, and two drop dead golf courses.

Deep Creek Lake offers the visitor a range of options from seemingly being at the beach to being in the outdoors next to nature. You can boat, swim, fish, camp and grill out ALL in ONE location.

Great place for the whole Family with boating, swimming and fishing and lets not forget about the year round Roller Coaster http://topic.ibnlive.in.com/parliament/videos/mountain-coaster-deep-creek-maryland-mqL_108V2Mo-1974409.html. and year round skiing. Just a great place at a slower pace.

The lake is big and beautiful! Was there on Father's day 2014. Not a cloud in the sky ,the lake was deep blue in color and the trees that rim the entire lake are gorgeous green in color. I understand that the shoreline is 65 miles so this is no small lake! The temperature was in the low 80's and... More
