GRANTSVILLE — An icon of Deep Creek Lake from a bygone era will soon have a new life.
The former Deep Creek Visitors Center, which at one time was located along U.S. 219 beside Johnny’s Bait House (which closed in 2003,) has been reclaimed by Mike Dreisbach and Jan Russell, along with Paul Edwards, director of secondary education for Garrett County. It will be used as the National Road Visitors Center, and will be placed near the Casselman Bridge. For more information click here

• Know and obey the rules.
• Display required dock number plate and use the nearest
number to identify your location in an emergency event.
• Be attentive and look out for others.
• Control your speed and dock slowly—boats have no brakes.
• Navigate carefully into narrow coves and watch for restrictions.
• Watch your wake. You’re responsible for damage it may cause.
• Never swim near a running engine.
• Always sit in a moving boat—never on it.
• Be respectful of Natural Resources Police officers, who are
there for your safety.
• Control personal watercraft speed safely—jet drives have
no steering when you cut power. Keep required distances
from other boats, docks and the shore.
• When overtaking another boat from behind, the boat in
front has the right of way.
