Deep Creek Lake State Park, Swanton, Maryland

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We just returned from a camping trip over Memorial Day Weekend 2016. The location of the park is very good - close to the lake with a sandy beach. The problem with the park is for some reason a ton of trees have been cut down and are laying everywhere. It looks like a state of destruction as you are camping with piles of downed trees and branches everywhere. We were in John Garrett loop. It gave us a very bad feeling like we were survivors after a catastrophic event. The lower Meshach Browning loop was also not great because the campsites were very, very close together. We cancelled a later reservation that we had because of these problems. We camped at Deep Creek Lake State Park in a Tent.
