About For The Love of Deep Creek

Because we love it here!

Deep Creek Lake is located in the center of Garrett County, the most far western county in Maryland. We border both West Virginia and Pennsylvania, making us very accessible to places like Morgantown and Pittsburgh. We’re also within a few hours of Ohio, Virginia, and the eastern side of our state, too.

We’re home to farmers, families, retirees, small business owners, second home owners, and numerous kiddos who attend our schools in the south and north. We’ve got an active local community with a busy events calendar and many successful non-profit organizations. Our spring and summer seasons come a little late, fall comes early and winter sometimes sticks around for too long. But we love it here!

The lake, mountains, bountiful nature scenes, and relaxed atmosphere of Deep Creek and Garrett County, MD bring people together for vacation, reunions, weekend getaways, group retreats, weddings, community events, and second-home opportunities. This place has power, and so many people love it here! Let’s keep sharing and spreading the love of Deep Creek! The FTL t-shirts are just the beginning…
