“over 3,000 acres for visitors to enjoy”

Rocky Gap State Park is located in Western Maryland’s Allegany County. The park encompasses over 3,000 acres of public land for visitors to enjoy. Rugged mountains surround the park, featuring 243-acre Lake Habeeb. The lake is fed by Rocky Gap Run, which winds its way through an impressive mile-long gorge, displaying sheer cliffs, overlooks and a hemlock forest dense with rhododendron and mountain laurel. Overlooking the lake is Evitt’s Mountain, named for one of the first European settlers in Allegany County. Rocky Gap State Park's visitor facility is located in the Day Use Area and was designed with a nod to an architectural style known as "Parkitecture," the rustic nature inspired structure blends beautifully with the surrounding landscape. The facility is made up of three buildings connected by covered walkways. The snack bar area has panoramic windows overlooking the lake as well as indoor and outdoor seating. Hot and cold menu items are available throughout the summer season, including hand dipped ice cream! The center building is home to a Ranger Station. Finally, the third building is a spacious Men’s and Women’s Bathhouse which has fully accessible toilet, shower and changing room areas.

Very good lake, with a good swim area. Neat restrooms and bath area. The lake also have a Boat Rental area as well. The trail around the lake offers good view.

For part of our covid friendly honeymoon, my fiancé and I camped here. Perfect morning hiking for getting up around 830 and heading out by 1. The camp sites are solidly in the woods, though the aite pictures online might not look like it. Firewood that you buy from them is kept really dry. Making a fire was easy and two bundles was just $6.00. Thank you Rocky Gap for night 1 of our honeymoon road trip!
