Can't-Miss Things to Do Around Deep Creek
Whether you’re looking for summer fun in the pristine waters of Deep Creek Lake, are seeking the perfect spot to contemplate the fall colors at the Autumn Glory Festival, or want to wait for winter and take a powder at Wisp Resort, the Mid-Atlantic’s premiere ski resort, Deep Creek is a true, year round destination. Learn to fly-fish at Streams and Dreams, dip a paddle at Adventure Sports Center International or on the Youghiogheny, or marvel at the craftsmanship of master artisans at the Simon Pearce Glass Blowing Workshop.
1 Go Boating on Deep Creek Lake
Feeling the need for speed? Rent a jet ski or a speedboat for wakeboarding. Looking for an unusual spot for a picnic? Take the family out on a patio boat for 360-degree lake views. Craving serenity? Canoe, kayak or rent a sailboat to enjoy the lake's 3,900 acres of cool, clean water.
2 See Where History Lives at Spruce Forest Artisan Village
Located on the historic National Road just a stone’s throw from the soaring stone Casselman River Bridge, old-world craftspeople still ply their trades in the Spruce Forest Artisan Village. The sound of hammers and anvils ring from centuries-old log cabins in this one of a kind place. After, try some good home cooking at the famous Penn Alps Restaurant & Craft Shop.
3 Visit Accident

Your stop will include the Moon Shadow Café for a local pairing of Farm Fresh produce and goat cheese from Firefly Farms. Walk across the street to Firefly Farms & Creamery, talk to the cheese makers and discover how their handmade goat cheeses have become world-renowned.
