The park is beautiful and provides mountain atmosphere. There is a casino now which draws many tourists. It is well done and a nice way to spend some time if you enjoy it. The water and camping areas provide some time with nature. Very lovely place to visit

Sites here are large and wooded and pretty private. One loop has electric sites and the bathrooms were clean. Beautiful area of Western Maryland with the mountains and lakes. The town of Cumberland is a short drive away where the C&O canal towpath can be accessed for a great bike ride as well as a ride on the Western Maryland... More

Most of the trail was very walkable and interesting, taking about 2-3 hours to walk, We stopped a lot to watch birds, look for wildlife,... More

The rooms were comfortable, Casino was convenient and just the right size. The breakfast and lunch menus were very good and affordable. The setting was beautiful. Three of us golfed on... More

Great campground with a walking path that takes you all around the lake and even down to the resort/casino. Camping spots were nicely private with mature trees/bushes. We spent the day hiking and relaxing then called the hotel for a free shuttle to the resort where we took advantage of great restaurants and some gaming FUN. When calling for shuttle... More

Beautiful campground and park. There seems to be a lot to do here including an aviary and a lake. I went to the aviary and found it very interesting. At the lake it looks like there is kayaks and canoes for rent. I was camping here over the weekend (late October) it was very cold but this park would be... More
