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 offers 278 individual campsites, including 30 equipped with electric hook-ups. Full details of every campsite at Rocky Gap are available. The campground also features a dump station, centrally located bathhouses with hot water, a family group site, three youth group camping areas, one boat ramp, boat rentals, laundry facilities, a nature center, game room, private swimming beach and a camp store. Fourteen mini cabins, each with electric, bunk bed and a double bed, are available for rent. Pets are allowed in four designated camp loops.
The family group site offers visitors a location for many units and space for up to 40 people to camp together. The group site includes a two-story mini cabin with balcony, porch, and electric, as well as six electric hookups and a group fire ring. Access to two nearby bathhouse facilities is available.
