Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Summer Activities

 

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Summer Activities. It gets easier to be revved up for summer when you start seeing the boats filtering on the lake. Yesterday there was a mix of recreational tubers, fisherman, and marinas tuning up boats for their clients. Weather has warmed up to summer temps this week and you can tell folks are starting to gather into the lake. Last night I did my evening paddleboard between 7:30pm-9:00pm and saw some late evening fisherman and a few boats screaming by trying to ensure that their boats are running smoothly. I cruised past a family of at least a dozen who were throwing football and roasting smores around a fire pit near the water’s edge. I love summer!

 In case you missed the USA Canoe/Kayak Whitewater Slalom Team Trails this weekend, here is a photo gallery on our Deep Creek Lake, Maryland Facebook page of some of the action. Remember this will determine who will be competing in next year’s ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships of 2014 between September 16-21, 2014. We had three Olympic medalists here competing this weekend. Look ahead in your calendar if you plan on visiting because this is no small event. Word is that lots of people will have to stay out of town because all rentals will be booked. This event will be the biggest event ever hosted here at the lake. The eyes of the world and Canoe/Kayak community will be focused on Deep Creek Lake for a week. Plan far in advance so you don’t miss it!

 

Intense competition

If you have not visited ASCI or tried to go whitewater rafting I highly recommend it! There are only a few re-circulating whitewater courses in the world and we are lucky to have the best here in our back yard.

This weekend we have the Tom Wallisch Rail Jam at Wisp Resort on Saturday, May 25th. Registration is between 6pm-7pm with the competition starting soon thereafter. They say there is plenty of snow to hold this event and I hope you have a chance to go check out some of the skiers and snowboarders competing. The Tom Batcherlor Band will provide the music.

Summer time here at DeepCreekLakealways turns the attention to lake and outdoor activities. If you are looking for something really fun and relaxing, I suggest visiting Black Bear Tavern on Friday and Saturday night to enjoy live music outside on the deck. Socialize and mingle with locals and visitors while listening to first class music at one of DCL’s go-to places for outdoor entertainment. Grab a favorite drink of choice and have a delicious meal while taking in the scenery only a few steps from the lake. The Davisson Brothers Band was there last week, jamming out their unique West Virginia sound with guest guitarist and the Oakland Raiders new recruit, Owen Schmitt. Owen laid down some soulful Jimmy Hendrix licks during the band’s smooth rendition of the classic tune “Little Wing”.

Give The Black Bear a call (301-387-6800) or drop by on your next visit to see what is happening “On The Deck”. Take a deep breath and relax, because that is what visiting us here at Deep Creek is all about.

Deep Creek Lake has a lot of admired institutions that have earned the respect of patrons from all over the Mid-Atlantic. Black Bear Tavern leads the way in this department with a lively, entertaining, and fun filled atmosphere that will put you face to face socializing with happy people from many different backgrounds and hometowns.  Black Bear hosts the only nightclub here at the lake that gets cranking every weekend and keeps everybody in high spirits with a ever changing musical variety. They cover all the musical bases with rock-n-roll, funk-a-delic-disco, and country. No matter what you choose, you will be dancing on a packed dance floor with friends and strangers who will eventually become your friends.

During the warm summertime, Black Bear Tavern shifts some of the fun out on their huge outdoor patio where you can catch some rays, enjoy good food, drink your favorite beverage, and listen to some great music. There is always a daily lunch special and a huge menu to choose from. I suggest trying the crab cake dinner (The best crab cake on the lake in my opinion) with an icy cold Newcastle to wash it down. The staff will make you feel relaxed and hustle to make your experience there a good one. Take a little time off the lake or the ski slopes on your next visit and go check out Black Bear!!  Go eat, drink, dance, and make merry!!!
