Great little family campground

Swimming pool available and pond for fishing. Nice little store. Lots of pavilions for large family outings.

Basic overnight and daytrip camping area

Basic tent camping sites. Portable bathroom facilities only. Only a mile from the historic paw paw tunnel. Tunnel is very fun to travel through. Kids and adults alike enjoy the tunnel. Tunnel is always nice and cool refreshing during a long bike ride or hike on a hot day. Make sure to bring some flashlights for inside the tunnel as it is a mile long and gets very dark! Amazing to see the work that the canal builders accomplished.

Basic overnight camp sites.

Cons of the site are: Sites are very basic 1 parking spot flat tent campsites. No privacy from other campsites. Small camp area only 1 loop with approx 10 sites. Portable toilet facilities only and well pump for water. Pros: 5 minutes from the town of Cumberland. Boat ramp for easy access to the Potomac river. Located right between the c&o canal towpath and Potomac river. Daytime parking for bike rides or day trips. Short distance via the canal to historic lock houses and sites. Great for a quick stop or overnight stay when traveling the canal.

Great family campground. Lots to do for hikers, bikers, and family.

Great location in Western Maryland. 10 min ride to Cumberland (larger town) 5 min ride to small town of Flintstone. Lots of well marked trails that range from beginner to advanced. Lake holds opportunity for numerous activities from swimming, fishing, kayaking, paddle board, and canoeing. No motorized boats which can be a good thing sometimes. The lake even has areas for pets to swim! Campground has tent sites, cabins, camper sites and group sites. All loops have bath houses with showers. Several loops have sites with electric hook ups and pets friendly loops as well. Casino and golf course located on the opposite side of the lake if you wish to visit them while camping.
