Calling all Adventurers!

If you’re one of those people who love outdoor adventure, exploration or perhaps just regular old exercise, Deep Creek Lake has lots to offer this fall. We asked around the office for everyone’s favorite autumn activity and put together a list of the Top 10 Things to Do in Deep Creek this Fall.

1.Take a hike at Swallow Falls State Park to the spectacular 53-foot Muddy Creek Falls.

2. Mountain bike through natural rugged terrain in cool temperatures – from cross-country to downhill, there’s something for everyone.

3. Go whitewater rafting with experienced ASCI guides through moderate courses or high adventure rapids.

4. Play golf on one of the 4 golf courses in the Deep Creek area. Wisp Resort’s two 18-hole courses (Wisp Resort Course and Lodestone), the 18-hole championship Oakland Golf course and the 9-hole Thousand Acres course.

5. Rent a boat and rip around the lake.

6. Go paddleboarding, kayaking or canoeing on the lake.

7. Play at the Wisp Adventure Park. The Mountain Coaster is a “must do” for thrill seekers.

8. Take your best friend fishing for a day of conversation and bonding.

9. Challenge yourself on a rock climbing adventure among natural rock faces. ASCI offers guided climbs and rappelling at Fork Run’s “Ledges and Boulders.”

10. Venture out on the country roads to experience the barn quilt tour of Garrett County to see the quaint old barns, beautiful quilt designs, and scenic mountain countryside.

At the end of the day, you’ll be content to sit around the fire at your vacation rental home, sharing stories from your day with family and friends.

The Deep Creek Lake Art & Wine Festival returns this September

Save the date! Deep Creek’s annual Art & Wine Festival returns to the Garrett County Fairgrounds September 6ththrough 8th.


Picture yourself sipping wine while browsing unique artisan exhibits. The cooler air hints at shorter fall days. Leaves display hues from green to red. Perhaps you want to stretch the summer season at the lake … or maybe celebrate fall in its own right … either way, Deep Creek Lake is purely spectacular in September!


One of our favorite annual events, the Deep Creek Lake Art & Wine Festival, kicks off on September 6th and runs through September 8th. From wine tasting and food pairings to face painting and balloon art for the kids, this weekend promises fun filled activities for the whole family.


On Friday evening, local restaurants will host wine pairing dinners where chefs and sommeliers showcase their craft with specialty dishes and wines from around the globe. Tickets for the Wine Pairing Dinner can be purchased onlinethrough August 25th.


From noon to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, over thirty professional artists and craftsmen will display their art at the Garrett County Fairgrounds. Food artisans will prepare delectable treats, national wine distributors will sample a wide selection of wines and live musical entertainment will set the festive stage. Interactive kids activities run throughout the day with carriage rides, a moon bounce and duck bobbing for charity.


Take advantage of great off-season rates at nearby vacation rental homes and plan to spend the weekend. While not attending festival events, you can relax in your own private home with plenty of room to spread out.


Proceeds from the festival benefit our local HART for Animals and the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival.  For a complete list of events, visit the Deep Creek Lake Art & Wine Festival website.


Hope to see you there!

Leaving Dock Holiday, one of our vacation rental homes, the other day, I spotted some geese and their nest just off of the lakefront where a stump rose from the waters.  What a neat sight that reminded me Spring is here!  Looking forward to getting out on the water just like them sometime soon.We are gearing up for summer as well.  This means that we have several extra positions open for hire.  If you or someone you know is looking for seasonal employment, send them over to our careers page.  We would love to hear from them.Railey Mountain Lake Vacations – Careers
