It’s been a snowy, cold winter for Deep Creek, Maryland and much of the East, which has been great for skiing and snowboarding and all the great winter activities we enjoy. But around this time of the year, many of us start to get a little “spring fever” as we start to daydream about green grass, colorful flowers, and warmer temperatures. Spring is a beautiful time to visit Deep Creek, when trees start to bud, grass comes back to life, docks are put into the lake, and the rivers start to rush. With a wide variety of spring activities to enjoy at Deep Creek, now is the time to beat those winter blues with a Deep Creek Lake spring getaway. Mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding are an excellent way to get out in nature and take in the beautiful scenery of the forests and open space parks. The fresh smells and sounds of spring simply cannot be beat, and the Deep Creek area offers thousands of acres of trails to enjoy on horseback, bike, or foot. The rivers and waterfalls really come to life in the spring with the snowmelt and runoff from the winter’s snow – it is a sight to see! Spring is also a nice time to get out on the lake for canoeing, boating, or fishing. The temperatures start to warm up, docks are put back into Deep Creek Lake, and there is less boating traffic in the spring. Enjoy a peaceful, quiet day at your favorite fishing hole or stream, or canoe along the shores of the lake and take in views of colorful wildflowers and newly budding trees. Deep Creek Lavender Farm, an 8-acre farm just north of Deep Creek Lake, opens to visitors on May 24, 2014 – this is a real spring treat! Breathe in the wonderful scent of lavender as you tour the farm and shop for homemade lavender gifts to bring home to friends and family. Swallow Falls State Park holds maple syrup demonstrations in the spring, which is a fun activity for the whole family. Participants will learn how maple syrup is made and pure maple syrup products are available for sale. There is nothing better than fresh maple syrup straight from the source. Herrington Manor State Park also offers a maple syrup demonstration with a pancake breakfast afterwards. Railey Mountain Lake Vacations still has plenty of availability this spring, so browse online or call us today at 877-624-3677 to book your cabin rental.
