“Crowded”

Deep Creek Tube Center

Reviewed 31 July 2013

Picturesque, nice valley view... Until you pan back and see your neighbors 20 feet away on either side of your campsite.

We were unprepared for the population density here - much more crowded than for our taste. The facility seems a bit overwhelmed by the numbers, too. They clean the shower buildings once per day and they are pretty gross well before cleaning time.

The grounds has some nice kid-friendly areas and we were very happy that the kids got some quality kid time in while we were here.

The staff were kind and helpful, and the main office/store is top-notch.

We are new to trailer-camping, and while we were not disappointed with this site or with tubing / zip-lining in the area, I think we'll probably look for a place that has either more room or fewer campsites.

We had planned to tube on Deer Creek and called the establishment for information. I reviewed their pamphlet however, still had a few questions. Since we were not familiar to the area my husband called and asked for directions. The answer he received was "put it into your GPS." Really? We have been told by several places that the area is not GPS friendly. (When we did this for other places it had us going all over town.) Needless, to say we went elsewhere which was less expensive and great customer service!! Try J&J s Tube rental they are owned by teachers. You will be happy you did!

We so enjoyed our daily walks along the Deep Creek. The trails are not to steep and even after all the rain, they are not hard to walk. The "creek" was running high and fast and watching the tubers is fun. Check out the trails that take you to the waterfalls, it is worth the short hikes. Great place for families. I will say that if you decide to "tube" the creek, please make sure you know what you're getting into. During our weeks visits, 2 times we saw people tubing who were dumped from their tubes, let go of the tubes and were stuck along the creek shore. One person had a good scrape on the legs, the other was just very shook up.

Our 4th year coming to this campground and always a blast! Kids love the play areas and tubing was great for the whole family. Has been kind of a new family tradition to come here. Clean, friendly, and a great getaway for all. Mountain view is awesome!

This was our first year camping here. Our family had lots of fun! Kids played at the fort play area from dawn til dusk with other kids and we had such a great time! It rained a bit but the owners and staff were always very eager to help in any way. Very clean and welcoming. We will be certain to return!
