Navigating the Lake

Deep Creek Lake is owned by the State of Maryland and falls under the management of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Whether you are planning to rent a boat, or bring your own, it is important to be aware of your surroundings and be courteous for other boaters on the water. Driving a boat on the water is like driving a car on the road. Make sure to follow common steps when getting ready to take the boat out for the day. Having a list to make sure everything runs smooth and safe on the boat can help prevent problems and make the day more enjoyable. Be sure you and your passengers are aware of the rules before heading out on the water. This is key when having a fun day on the lake!


Since each state and lake can have different regulations and laws for watercraft, we recommend researching these rules before you plan to rent a boat or launch your own.
