Deep Creek Lake Community Spotlight: Kendall Camp

Kendall Camp

Kendall Camp is a mountaintop community that is an ideal spot for your next getaway no matter what the season.

Highlighted by big timber construction with stone accents, these towhomes give a true alpine vibe as soon as you pull through the gate. They offer 4-5 bedrooms, open floor plans, fireplaces and plenty of square footage for your family and friends.

SUMMER
Within a short walk, whitewater thrills are waiting for you at the Adventure Sports Center International (ASCI). The man-made recirculating course is the only one of its kind in the world. Guided rafting trips are available, and experienced paddlers with their own equipment can purchase passes to head out on their own. You can even try River Boarding – where, after a little instruction, you can swim in the rapids with a modified boogie board and fins.

5 Tips for the Best Deep Creek Lake Summer Vacation

Deep Creek Lake Summer VacationIf you are planning a Deep Creek Lake summer vacation for your family, chances are you can’t wait until it is time to pack up the car and head to the mountains. Getting away with family is an opportunity to enjoy uninterrupted time with your favorite people as you make memories that will last a lifetime. It is one of the best ways to bond and build relationships.

Here are our tips for making the most of your Deep Creek Lake summer vacation:

Let the kids help plan the trip. Give them a chance to pick out an activity they want to do or a place they want to eat. They will love having a chance to contribute. Kids love visiting the aviary at the Discovery Center, riding the mountain coaster at Wisp Resort and kayaking at DCL State Park. Mountain State Brewing Co. has board games to keep you busy while you wait for your flatbread, the 26 inch “Abondanza” at Brenda’s Pizzeria is always a crowd pleaser, and be sure to check out The Greene Turtle’s Mac & Cheese.

Herrington Manor SunsetTake lots of pictures. Beautiful sunsets happen every night and are best viewed from homes facing the lake’s western shores. Herrington Manor State Park is also a great spot to watch the sunset. The water is often very still with great reflection that makes for a lovely photo. Dramatic selfie backdrops are around every corner at Deep Creek Lake – from towering waterfalls and a man-made whitewater course to pristine forests and soaring lake views.
