Overall Rating:

Site was very large and private, surrounded by beautiful forest. Plenty of room for our pup, TV, pop-up gazebo, and gear. We were right in front of the bath house, which was convenient, but the light was pretty bright at night. We were also the closest site to the loop entrance, so we could hear some traffic along the main park road. Didn't bother us too much, but I imagine it would have been pretty noisy if we'd been there during peak summer season. Camping loop overall was nice and quiet, though; we had two neighbors while we were there, and barely saw nor heard anything from either of them.

This park is absolutely gorgeous. Easily the most beautiful MD State Park we've visited. Everything, from the forest, to trails, to lake, to Meadow Mountain, is a camper/outdoor enthusiast's dream. The fall foliage made everything even more beautiful. Apparently, the park is very popular amongst cross-country skiers in the winter, especially since they have full-service cabins and a warming hut by the lake. I'm not into cold weather at all, but I imagine I would love to spend a day by the lake in the summer time. Said lake area also has a concession stand, boat rentals, swimming beach, rec hall, and nature center, but these were all closed since we were there out of season.

Bath house in our loop was old and small, but kept very clean. I never used the shower, as it was too cold, but it looked adequate. LOTS of spiders, which don't really bother me, but definitely a nightmare for arachnophobes. We drove through the two other, non-pet-friendly loops, which were also beautiful. Sites were spacious and private, just like in our loop, but with the addition of tall pines. Saw mostly tent campers, and a few small TTs. We camped at New Germany State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There seem to be only 2 attractions in Grantsville, and we visited both. The first is Hill Top Fruit Market, which is a really neat store with extremely cheap produce, nuts, and spices, plus a huge selection of bulk weigh & pay candy. The other area attraction was Penn Alps and Spruce Forest Artisan Village, right next to the beautiful Casselman River Bridge. There is an artisan village, restaurant, concert venue, ice cream, etc. near by.
