Beautiful 😍

Beautiful . The only thing that I didn’t liked was that were a lot of sharp stones on the bottom of the swimming part of the lake .

Everything You Need

Very nicely maintained state campgrounds near many activities and restaurants, most notably Deep Creek Lake and Wisp Ski Resort. We went in late June, and the weather was warm in the daytime and cool at night. Perfect. Although it was a bit crowded, it did not feel claustrophobic. Great hiking trails nearby with some wildlife. We’ll definitely be back.

Tucked in a corner by a touristy lake

Lots of touristy things around the lake, then you drive by lots of vacation homes on the lakeshore and then you pull into the camp and you feel like you are miles away from all that stuff.

Vibe: in crowded when we were there, but you get the sense it’s a summer hotspot popular with boaters

Spots: spots are fine, not tons of room between sites, but certainly okay. Semi-private

Cell service: good on Verizon

Overall: beautiful lake, lots of things to do in the area, camp feels like camping but close to markets, restaurants and more

Do stop at FireFly Farms for cheese and other goodies in Accident, MD
