Dig out your bathing suites and grab a towel: the Deep Creek Dunk is just around the corner! While it may seem crazy to brave the freezing lake this February, a little cold won’t stop these dedicated “dunkers” from raising money for the Special Olympics!
Garrett County is famous for a couple of things: the beauty of the lake, our stunning fall foliage, and, come winter, lots and lots of snow! This is why we are home to Maryland’s only ski resort and the reason why Deep Creek Lake remains a popular destination long after the lake freezes over; our winters are pure magic!
What kind of vacation are you looking forward to this winter? A cozy retreat in a wooded cabin? How about a gathering with family and friends in a home built for entertaining? Or is action and adventure more your speed? No matter why you come to Deep Creek– or the kind of vacation lodging you are looking for– we are sure to have the perfect home for you!
Swallow Falls State Park is one of Deep Creek’s top destinations for visitors and locals, alike- and for good reason. This four-season destination is a hit for those looking to spend some time in the great outdoors. Boasting Maryland’s highest free-falling waterfall, as well as a series of smaller waterfalls and charming banks along the Youghiogheny River, Swallow Falls State Park is the perfect place for hiking, biking, picnicking, and more. And did you know that Railey Mountain Lake Vacations has four charming cabins- with rustic sensibilities but modern upgrades- within walking distance to Swallow Falls?
