Excellent restaurants, theaters, outdoor activities, and of course, the lake. Very busy in the summer months and the area also has excellent skiing in the winter. Something here for everyone. Try Uno's or the Honi for great meals, the Honi also has concerts, both sit right on the lake and have boat dock access. Put Deep Creek Lake on your list for fall leaf watching too.

Deep Creek Lake Maryland is a short drive from the DC area yet a whole world away! The temperature is cooler, the pace is slower and relaxing. The lake is peaceful and relaxing, with plenty of shoreline.

Wonderful experience at deep creek. Renting a pontoon boat on the lake was fantastic. The 50 hp is least expensive and enough power to get around. Although if you want to pull a tube you may want more hp. If you go try to go out on the lake on a weekday not the weekend, the lake gets crowded. We rented on Friday and it was fun. P.S. try to look at the weather and not rent too far ahead I think the charge rain or shine.

My family and I just got back from Deep Creek and had a blast. There was something for everyone to do. We are already planning on going back next year. I recommend renting a boat for atleast one day of your trip.

Boating on the lake is one of my all time favorite activities because there is so much to do on a boat including tubing, water skiing, wakeboarding, knee boarding, swimming. Deep Creek Lake is the perfect place for all of those activities because there are so many coves and hideaways where one can go to escape other boaters. There are also so many place to anchor and just hang out on the boat and have fun. Also there are a lot of places to dock and go to eat or play and just have fun. Overall amazing experience, will continue to enjoy the lake.
