Located in Garrett County between Big Savage Mountain and the Eastern Continental divide, this park has 10 miles of trails which pass by small lakes, mixed hardwood forests, rhododendrons, and towering pine and spruce plantations. We saw a fox and some deer on our trip.

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 is a great park. No cell phone service to interrupt the wildlife. A little off the beaten path, but worth it!

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.

This is a small park with a small lake and small campgrounds, set into a forest of tall pine trees, with a short drive to nearby attractions. My son and I used this park as a jumping off point to a weekend of kayaking and...More
