Rocky Gap is a short drive, about 2.5 hours from Pittsburgh, where we live, so that is a plus. And the Rocky Gap State Park has a lake which is man-made, but serene. There is wildlife in the forms of birds and ducks. People go...More

Next to the Rocky Gap Resort and Casino is a beautiful park with sandy beach and body of water. There are boat rentals, swimming, fishing, and picnic tables with shade. Something for everyone.

This is a nice place. Great resort tucked away in the mountains of Maryland. Wish they had more room availability - call way ahead they book fast. Casino has new games too. Just visited Rocky Gap in July 2017.
