Late Summer Activity – Deep Creek Lake. Here we are almost two weeks into August and the activity at the lake seems to be in full rpm mode. I took a spin around to get a feel for the number of people here at the lake on a “hump day” Wednesday. I was happily surprised to see people enjoying numerous Deep Creek activities. The summer season is showing no signs of slowing down. It’s fun to see the different ways families enjoy their stay here at Deep Creek Lake.
Cherry Creek Cove had the most activity with folks trying to get out of the breezy mid-point of the lake. I stopped and shot a few photos and became very jealous at all the fun I was missing out on. Families were out on kayaks, paddleboards, water skis, tubes, and jet skis. Smiles and laughter were the mood of the day. Fishing poles were wet, swimmers were being refreshed and boaters were cruising the cove. It all looked like a well synchronized dance.
We are past the 7th inning stretch and heading toward the end of the summer season here at the lake. Don’t throw in the towel just yet and call Taylor-Made Rentals @ 866-351-1119 X-1 for a wonderful rental property. Enjoy an extended week away from the stresses of work. Call Betsy Spiker Holcomb @ 301-616-5022 with any questions you may have regarding lake activities or real estate properties for sale.
Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Wisp Labor Day Sale. The end of the summer is approaching like a freight train and I am very happy to have finally had a chance to get on the lake with family. Our oldest sons, Brendon and Peyton, and their girlfriends came up last week to visit with little brother Griffin. They ziplined, rode the mountain coaster, went for a swim at Swallow Falls, jet skied to the southern end of the lake, enjoyed some Brenda’s Pizza (their favorite DCL pizza), and had ice cream at Huey’s. I had a busy week of appointments but caught up with them to go white water rafting at ASCI, a sunset paddleboard session and an amazing dawn patrol wakeboarding/slalom ski session. We also took little Griffin on his first pontoon boat ride (with the older boys tubing the whole way) to Dutch’s Daughter for lunch on the veranda. I suggest you come visit this weekend and cram it all in. Here are some photos of the 4 days of fun!

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Summer Activities-McHenry, Maryland History. This weekend is a little slow on events but never comes up shy on the vast amount of summer activities. The tubers and fishermen have been steady on the lake as the weather remains perfect here at the lake. I noticed local ski and wakeboard instructor Greg Rouse on the water barefoot skiing at 6am a few days back, which is the most exciting/interesting thing I have seen on the lake.
Deep Creek Marina has recently acquired the popular Lakeside Club from DC Development and has re-directed the course from how it operates. There is a full-term commitment to their clients and the new ‘Deep Creek Marina Club’ is sharing this wonderful amenity with them on several different levels. Here are more details.
Deep Creek Marina is proud to announce the opening of the Deep Creek Marina Club. We have never been so excited to give something back to our customers as this private club. We believe we have come up with the ultimate customer loyalty program that exceeds any points programs and other typical customer loyalty programs by tenfold and we are pretty certain you’ll agree.
DEEP CREEK MARINA CLUB
Would you like to have another boating destination on Deep creek Lake? One that you can call your own? Well, now you have it. Members get their own private club to hang out and socialize or just kick back and relax. The Deep Creek Marina Club was conceptualized as a way to capture the boating lifestyle for our customers and offer an additional boating destination (plenty of parking by auto as well). The Club currently offers incredible gourmet sandwiches and Pizzettes. You can pick from our boat brand sandwich menu or build your own just the way you want it. We also offer weekend and daily food and drink specials. Beer, Wine, and top shelf liquor are offered exclusively for our members and their guests. Best of all membership is free to our boat owners (certain restrictions apply).
Other benefits of membership include complimentary use of paddleboards, pedalboats, and kayaks, use of the lakefront tables and Adirondack chairs that make for a pleasant afternoon, or evening outing. Kids or kids at heart can relax with our indoor pool table and game room and there is even a spot for little kids right where mom and dad can keep an eye on them and still enjoy the club offerings. Hours for June are Thursday- Monday 11
Betsy captured this photo last week of a fox in the middle of the day which is very rare. It’s kind of neat photo because you’ll notice a reflection in the glass of the front door which gives the illusion of two foxes.
No other Deep Creek Lake activity screams family fun like Snow Tubing at Wisp Resort. Take a little time away from skiing or snowboarding and head down to Wisp Outdoors Adventure Park and get the family signed up for a fun afternoon of snow tubing. This takes very little effort, other than bringing your enthusiasm with you, and a smile on your face. Just grab a tube (the firmer, the faster) and head up the magic carpet to the top of the park. Stop and look around at the top because you get an amazing view of McHenry Cove from that vantage point. Don’t be intimidated in any way shape or form. Plant your bottom in a tube and get ready to slide and spin your way up and down the dump-dee-dumps to the bottom. Try it on your belly on your next run if you want to mix up the excitement. Don’t put it off another minute on your next visit to Deep Creek Lake. Watch the kids’ smiles, on both young and adult, at the end of every run and see how they scurry with excitement to their next turn down the mountain.
