One of our monthly blog posts on what to see, do, or where to eat on Deep Creek Lake and Western Maryland.
For those heading to Deep Creek Lake this summer, you’ll love all the outdoor recreation the lake provides, but for those who prefer thrill-seeking excursions, you’ll want to plan on checking out Adventure Sports Center International. The most popular choice is whitewater rafting on their mile-long manufactured loop with mild and intense rapids on top of Wisp Mountain. In fact, Adventure Sports Center is the only mountaintop whitewater course in the world! The concrete and natural rock course measures over 1700 feet long with a 24-foot drop from top to bottom.
Wisp Mountain is also home to Wisp Resort, one of the premiere ski resorts in Maryland, but there are also fun summer and fall activities to discover here as well. From scenic lift rides to two professional golf courses to disc golf and mountain biking trails—there’s something for everyone. A rafting excursion with Adventure Sports Center and exploring Wisp Resort are a few of the best ways for active, outdoor lovers to spend a day in Deep Creek Lake.
Before you start planning your itinerary, you’ll want to secure your Deep Creek lodging—our luxurious bed and breakfast on the shores of the lake is one of the best places to stay. We’re located just across the street from Wisp Resort, so you’ll be in the ideal location to check out Adventure Sports Center, but you’ll retreat back to the peace and quiet of our inn. With only 12 guest rooms and suites, you’ll never encounter unwanted noise or crowds. We’ll also treat you to a hearty breakfast each morning, included in your stay—not all Deep Creek Lake lodging properties offer that service. Start planning those outdoor adventures and book your room today.
One of the best things to do in Deep Creek Lake is head to Wisp Mountain for rafting or kayaking at Adventure Sports Center and warmer weather activities at Wisp Resort. You’ll start your day at our Deep Creek Lake lodging with a wonderful meal and be ready to set off and explore the nearby activities.
