Next to the Rocky Gap Resort and Casino is a beautiful park with sandy beach and body of water. There are boat rentals, swimming, fishing, and picnic tables with shade. Something for everyone.

This is a nice place. Great resort tucked away in the mountains of Maryland. Wish they had more room availability - call way ahead they book fast. Casino has new games too. Just visited Rocky Gap in July 2017.
