Deep Creek offers more than picnicking. You can go tubing (rent a tube for the day for around $5 at nearby commercial 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 (but no running water in winter), has 58 picnic tables, plus a pavilion that seats up to 70. There's also a campground here.
