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!
Driving into Deep Creek, you may have noticed a funny thing: a little town off the highway with a very peculiar name. People often ask us what a town has to do to get such an unusual moniker. With a name like ‘Accident’, people are bound to talk.
