Four Season Deep Creek Lake

Imagine with me for a minute a beautiful lake nuzzled into majestic mountain ranges that boasts four spectacular seasons with literally hundreds of different activities  to quench your thirst for living.  Close your eyes and spin an imaginary wheel with the four seasons on it, and wherever it lands you will be rewarded with a special time to visit us here at the lake.  Deep Creek Lake is truly an amazing four season area to come explore with your family and friends.  It will not take long for Garrett County to feel like home as you experience year-after-year perfect mountain conditions, one season at a time.

Winter time here at the “Little Tahoe of the East” can be more fun and excitement than you can take.  There is plenty of snow to provide a picturesque background to many winter activities.  I suggest after getting your fill of skiing or snowboarding that you go take a hike in one of Garrett County’s 7 State Parks. Swallow Falls State Park is my personal favorite in the wintertime because of the partially frozen falls that are covered with hundreds of little icicles.  Bring a camera and some snowshoes after a big snow and be prepared to enter a winter wonderland.

As spring starts to slowly melt the snow, again the waterfalls and Youghiogheny River swell dramatically and you will witness some of the most spectacular waterfalls the East Coast has to offer at Swallow Falls State Park.  Listen to the sound of water flowing that rivals that of thunder and feel the freight train power of the Yough exploding all around you.  Spring is also a good time to get your boat tuned up and head to the lake to begin capitalizing on some productive fishing.

As summer arrives, you are in the heart of my favorite time of the year here.  Enjoy low humidity, warm air and lake temperatures, and a zillion things to do.  Every day here during the summer season is sacred to me and I count my blessings every car ride to work.  Summers here possess a positive, beautiful aura for being alive.  Activities?  Hmmm…it would take days to list all the things I enjoy doing here during the summer.  For a start, go on a hike, go Kayaking, go wakeboarding, go fishing, those are the obvious.  Go chase every day with the eyes of an explorer and you’ll be amazed at what you uncover.

Fall here brings people from all over the East Coast to enjoy the stunning fall foliage as the trees prepare to shed their leaving and turn into the most amazing kaleidoscope of colors.  Find a spot on Wisp Mountain that has mountain views and you’ll be in awe of colorful mountainscapes.  It is also a prime time to go fishing on the lake and in the rivers so don’t forget your fishing gear.

Come visit the only home I’ve ever known and see the brilliance of all four seasons.

There is something thing to be said for the changing of the seasons and the anticipation and excitement of things to come. After a fulfilling winter of activities there is an eagerness for spring to arrive so we can hear the birds chirping on a warm sunny morning, or to once again witness the familiar smells of the flowers and grass after months of snow on the ground. Then as we transition toward summer and the lake comes alive with activities and my mind becomes fixated on simple pleasures like summer tomatoes, Maryland blue crabs, or fresh silver queen corn. Each season has some familiar thing that pleasures one of your senses and the anticipation makes it all the more satisfying.

The last five days here in Deep Creek Lake we have seen crisp sunny blue skies and a slight rise in temperatures signaling the approach of brilliant springtime. As the snow levels subside and the streets and back wood paths begin to thaw, you can feel the energy level pulsing throughout the community. How exhilarating after a cold snowy winter it is to go for a jog, or take you dog for a walk or in warm sunshine. I have always believed that if you love and appreciate something in life you must let it go sometimes to see if it returns to you another day. My love for wintertime has always returned year-after-year.  And I spend the rest of the time enjoying all the other seasons and the thrill of what they have to offer.
