With 65 miles of shoreline, Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County is Maryland’s largest freshwater lake. Stay in a lakeside cabin or lodge. You’ll have plenty of choices at this four-season resort area: fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, biking and golf, among them.
Adventure Sports Center International is one of two in the U.S. and only twelve worldwide, this amazing Olympic-style whitewater course. With the safety of a controlled environment, is perfect for the family to experience whitewater. Also rock climbing/rappelling, mountain biking and hiking.
Once temperatures drop (usually in mid to late November), there’s ice fishing at the lake. That’s also when skiers and snowboarders arrive at the Wisp at Deep Creek Mountain Resort. For something different, try snow tubing -- Bear Claw Snow Tubing Park has seven 800-foot long tubing lanes.
Want a more leisurely outing? Antique shops, a microbrewery and a winery are not far away.
