DO the mountain coaster!

We stopped by to try out the mountain coaster they have at the resort. I ended up riding it 3 times it was that much fun. We went first thing in the morning so there were no lines.

I've lived and worked at Deep Creek and Wisp Resort in 2007/08 winter. The staff is cool and helpful. Snowboard acessories are Burtons and in great shape. They offer a lot of activies such as snowboard, sky, Mountain Coaster, Tubing park, bars, restaurants, indoor swimming pool, gym... We all had a great time!

Nothing to complain about here though it'd be convenient if their parking was paved and they had a shuttle so you didn't have to drive the short distances around the lakes offerings.

Woody was our guide today for an hour trip on the all terrain X2's. The off road tour was amazing and Woody was very willing to show you as many new maneuvers and tricks as he thought you could handle and teaching you anything you are comfortable learning. The course included paved trails, gravel, dirt, grass, hillsides, and obstacles like... More

My nephew (17) said, Let's do the mountain coaster!" "What mountain coaster?" We looked over at the mountain and saw this great rail ride twisting and turning on one side of the mountain. The ride was reasonably priced, very fun, and, best of all for those nervous of roller coasters, you get to go as slow or as fast as... More

My husband and I had a great time doing some summer/fall activities at Wisp. The ziplining was a must see/do for anyone visiting that is into adventure! Of course it was fun but there were the most beautiful views of Deep Creek Lake! Mountain coaster was fun, albeit a little overpriced- we only did 1 run but if you're interested... More

Stayed here while in the area for business. Requested a first floor room when making my reservation over a month in advance but was given a room on the second floor at check in. When I told the clerk of my request she told me she "didn't think" there were any available. However a co-worker who did not request first... More

As I was going given the confirmation code, I verified fg or try h we 3rd time that it was a handicap room. We get there and I'm given room keys for room 212.... More

We were in Deep Creek for a brief visit (wedding) so did not have much time to explore. We utilized the Pontoon Boat tour of the lake offered by WISP. It was a fantastic, educational and beautiful tour that gave us the backdrop story of Deep Creek Lake. Our guide Steve Draper was very personable and provided us with an... More

My daughter and I stopped in here on a day trip. Although we did not do any of the activities, if you were a kid you would have a good time. Lots to do and they had rides and obstacle course and chair lift rides. They also had a small gift shop and snack bar and lodging. I am sure... More
