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, Maryland

Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. Just a hair west of the Eastern Continental Divide on a large Plateau called Tablelands, and just a bit East of Morgantown, West Virginia home of the Mountaineers, you will find the up and coming resort town of Deep Creek Lake. Maryland.  The mighty Youghiogheny River carves through the panhandle of Maryland’s Garrett County mountains as it flows north through Pennsylvania and finally merges with the famous three rivers in the steel town of Pittsburgh then funnels to the Mississippi River and eventually drains into The Gulf of Mexico. Deep Creek Lake was a very popular get away for the rich and well-to-do folks who were trying to escape the brutal humid heat that dominated the East Coast at the turn of the century.  Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone and Thomas Edison often camped at Maryland’s highest waterfall, Muddy Creek falls which is only minutes from the northern end of the lake. Deep Creek Lake was in fact created when the DCL Dam was constructed in 1928, which gave this tranquil mountain environment another valuable asset and catapulted the area into becoming Maryland’s diamond in the rough. The lake slowly evolved to support lake recreational activities such as boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, and waterskiing and whose main stream popularity gained momentum through the decades to become the centerpiece for tourism in the state of Maryland.  In 1955, Mr. Ace Heise turned the cow pastures of Marsh Mountain into a make shift ski area that slowly evolved into one of the premier ski resorts on the east coast, Wisp Resort.  The power trio of Wisp Resort, Deep Creek Lake, and the Youghiogheny River stand as the nucleus to the county thriving abundantly with recreational activities year round.  Activities include; hiking, river and lake fishing, camping, snowshoeing, boating, sailing, wakeboarding, slalom skiing, ATV riding, snowmobiling, kayaking, snow skiing, snowboarding, zip lining, dune buggy trails, ice skating, a roller coaster, and jet skiing to name a few. With the popularity of the lake came more and more events to entertain locals and tourist alike.  Events like: The Autumn Glory Festival & Parade, The Deep Creek Dunk, The Cardboard Box Derby, Deep Creek Lake Art and Wine Festival, K-9 Tunes and Brews, Winter Fest,  Aquapooloza and many more throughout the season. Take a little time before your next visit to DCL and dig up some facts and history in the archives of the internet so your appreciation for this special town can be fully understood.

Kayaking on Deep Creek Lake

I’m not afraid to be the broken record here at Deep Creek Lake by yet again bragging about perfect temperatures here at the lake. Seriously! You can’t make this stuff up! Late summer mornings on the lake are ideal for your recreation of choice or just kick off your shoes and take a load off.

Kayaking on Deep Creek Lake

Here’s a thought…Go rent yourself a Kayak, find yourself a nice glassy shoreline and round up your sweetheart to go for a lazy adventure. Come on people, this is a sport that you don’t have to be a triathlon champ or a muscle head to enjoy. Gently dip your paddle in peaceful DCL and get yourself a nice chill glide going.  Take notice of the amazing views that you may have passed before too quickly on a boat. Kayaking is a great way to absorb new things around the lake that you have overlooked before. More importantly it’s a great way to calm your mind while having a delightful experience. Don’t put if off any longer. Come enjoy this special time of the year when the crowds have thinned down and the lake is perfect for this fantastic sport.

The Raven

The Raven-Edger Allen Poe

The Raven-Edger Allen Poe. I remember being fascinated and haunted by the hair raising Edgar Allen Poe classic “The Tale Tell Heart” in high school.”The Black Cat”, “The Cast of Amontillado”, “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, and the famous classic ”The Pit and the Pendulum” catapulted Poe into literary prominence forever

            On a recent visit to Baltimore to see a football game, I had the opportunity to walk the same streets as Poe and to visit his final resting place, Westminster Hall and Burying Ground, which has spookiness all in itself. Nestled among huge modern office buildings, concrete, steel, and cars, Westminster Church brings you far back in time to a kind of gothic/medieval atmosphere. Although Poe called a lot of cities home, it was Baltimore, Maryland that he married and wrote his famous poem “The Raven” which led the city to eventually name their football team after.

             From the salt water of Baltimore to the cool fresh waters of Deep Creek Lake, Marylander’s should feel immeasurable pride in a genius whose words have left behind a word wide legacy.
