page title: about deep creek lake

Deep Creek Lake, Maryland’s largest fresh water lake, is the center of Garrett County’s recreational attractions. The lake itself encompasses almost 3,900 acres within 65 miles of shoreline. Adjacent to the lake, crowning the Allegheny Mountains, is Wisp Ski Resort, offering 32 ski slopes, 10.5 miles of trails, a snow tubing park, and a “Mountain Coaster,” which zips down the mountain, in and out and through the forest. Everything from skiing and snowmobiling to fishing, golfing, mountain-top whitewater rafting, horseback riding and mountain biking is available. The many outdoor activities, along with future plans for a 78,000 square foot indoor water park, make Deep Creek Lake an absolutely delightful year-round vacation destination.

The year-round appeal of the Deep Creek Lake area has helped drive the appreciation of home and land values at a record pace. Though currently experiencing a decrease in real estate sales similar to the national real estate market, prices continue to rise in the area. Overall, the Deep Creek Lake market continues to outperform many of the national real estate averages.

Deep Creek Lake’s proximity to Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh has made it a popular destination for vacationers, as well as second home ownership. The Deep Creek Lake area can clearly be defined as a premier, second home vacation market. Its popularity makes it the undisputed heart of year-round recreation in Maryland and caters to individuals with primary residences in nearby states.
