Destination guide

Welcome to Deep Creek Lake

McHenry is a small town that lies on the northern shore of Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland. The lake covers almost 4,000 acres and has more than 60 miles of shoreline, providing ample opportunity for water sports, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. During the winter months, the snows arrive and the cold snap freezes the lake turning the area into a white wonderland. Don't let this stop you from staying at one of the McHenry vacation rentals, as the frosty realm is a pleasure to explore, and you can try your hand at some ice fishing. You can also dive into one of the historical museums, or enjoy a hot chocolate in one of the cozy log cabin cafes.

Things to do
