Dog friendly Deep Creek Lake activities and restaurants make our area a favorite destination for travelers with pets. It’s not a true family vacation unless you can bring your four-legged friend with you!
This list could be a lot longer, but here are a few of the highlights that you and your pooch don’t want to miss:
Explore the Lake in a Kayak
Paddling around the lake on quiet summer mornings is even more fun when your dog can join you! Rent a double kayak from Wisp Resort or High Mountain Sports, and they’ll deliver it right to your Deep Creek Lake vacation rental home.

So read through and consider this an outline and know these activities are really memorable for all ages. For more information go to our Deep Creek Lake Things To Do page with all sorts of categories from lake activities to winter skiing. There’s also an interactive map to show you where they are.

Miniature golf is a classic family vacation activity that is fun for big and little kids alike. I suggest hitting up Deep Creek Funzone or Funland when you are ready to play.
Ride a zipline with views of the lake at Monkey Business Adventure Park. They offer three levels of aerial challenges for ages 5 and up.
Pedal and paddle along the Youghiogheny River. Wilderness Voyageurs will outfit you with everything you need to enjoy a bike ride along the Great Allegheny Passage (it’s a relatively easy/flat ride) that leads you to a relaxing float on the Middle Yough. Pack a lunch for this non-guided adventure, and plan to swim, relax, laugh and enjoy!

A favorite summer destination, Deep Creek Lake State Park is home to endless outdoor adventures on water and on land. It’s a popular spot throughout all four seasons, but it truly shines in the summertime.

It’s a great place to spend a sunny afternoon swimming, picnicking, and enjoying the view. Tables, grills, restrooms, and a bathhouse are all available for you to use. If you’re vacationing with a larger group, you may want to consider reserving one of the pavilions in advance. Lifeguards are on duty at the designated swimming area from 10AM-6PM Memorial Day through Labor Day.

When you’re searching for the perfect Deep Creek Lake vacation rental for your family, there are a variety of things you look at – Does it have the right number of bedrooms? Is it in the location that you love best? How many can it accommodate? Of course, the most important criteria is the price of the home and if it is within your budget.
Recently, HomeAway, VRBO, and VacationRentals implemented a “traveler fee” to reservations booked through their websites. It varies from 4%-10% of the total value of the booking (not to exceed $499). When booking through these sites, you can review the fee by looking at “view details” of the booking section.
Why pay more for your vacation when you don’t have to?
We list our homes on these sites in order to give our properties maximum visibility. In light of this recent change, we encourage you to make your reservations for Deep Creek Lake vacation homes directly through www.deepcreekvacations.com or call 1-866-351-1119.
We appreciate our guests and understand that vacations are an investment. We always want you to get the best value when you choose one of our homes.
