Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County, Maryland!

Made in USA, this is our stunningly detailed Map of Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County, Maryland! Deep Creek Lake is the largest inland body of water in the U.S. state of Maryland. It covers approximately 3,900 acres and has 69 miles of shoreline! Similar to all lakes in Maryland, it is man-made. The lake is home to a wide variety of freshwater fish and aquatic birds. The Wisp ski resort is located nearby. This resort is home to a flourishing winter tourism industry and has expanded its offerings to embrace various summer activities as well. Fishing is extremely popular on the lake, for species such as largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and walleye. Recreational boating is favored in the summertime as well. The lake is a result of the Youghiogheny Hydroelectric Company hydroelectric project on Deep Creek in the 1920s. Deep Creek Dam, located about eight miles north of Oakland, Maryland, consists of an earth and rock wall dam across a tributary of the Youghiogheny River. Construction of the dam began in 1923 and was completed in 1925. The hydroelectric plant became operational at 4:00PM on May 26th, 1925. The lake was purchased by the state of Maryland in 2000 from the Pennsylvania Electric Company and public access to the lake is provided by Deep Creek Lake State Park! 🐟🦆
