GRiT @ Deep Creek Lake

  • Oak Pavilion Deep Creek Lake State Park 898 State Park Road Swanton, Maryland 21561​​ Unite (map)

The Maryland GRiT committee is excited to announce a collaboration event between the Maryland and West Virginia Leagues.  Please join us for a GRiT event at Deep Creek Lake on Sunday, August 4 from 11-2 at the Oak Picnic Shelter. Better yet, make it a weekend and camp with us on Saturday night!

We have reserved 15 campsites.  You can have 2 tents per site for a total of 6 people.  Each site is allowed 2 vehicles. All camping equipment and vehicles must remain on the gravel pads.  The sites we have reserved are on the non-pet loop. If you have a pet you wish to bring, you will have to make your own accommodations in a different part of the park.  Please be aware that the Maryland Park Services requires a two night minimum stay. The sites are reserved from Friday, August 2 to Monday, August 5th.
