Enjoyed a visit on a trip to Deep Creek. Has a nice swimming area and some walking trails to enjoy, We did not rent a cabin, but that was a possibility. A good place to stretch your legs to break up a long drive.

This state park has about 10 cabins for rent, a nice beach and some semi primative camping spots. Nice picnic area and playground.
