Fodor's Review

Deep Creek offers more than picnicking. You can go tubing (rent a tube for the day for under $5 at nearby tubing centers). Hike about 2 mi to three pretty waterfalls. Go trout fishing. You can even go mountain biking here, as this is one of the few park trails where bikes are allowed. The picnic area, open year-round, has 58 picnic tables, plus a pavilion that seats up to 70.
