Just sold! Camp Deep Creek conveys to Crossroads Church

I am very excited to announce that Crossroads Church has purchased a spectacular recreational retreat just a few miles from Deep Creek Lake & Wisp Ski Resort. “Camp Deep Creek” is an 18+ acre complex with plenty of wide-open spaces for sports, church & group activities. Absolutely gorgeous land and stunning improvements, all surrounded by mountain views & wooded seclusion. Its an incredibly peaceful spot!

The property will continue to be maintained & professionally managed by Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales. The church has a tremendous following locally and they have big plans for the usage of the facility – perhaps even a location for a new building to house the church. Larry Nesline and I, along with Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales, were honored to be a part of the listing & sale of this iconic Garrett County treasure!

Your lower level Family Room is the ideal place for the kids to play! Challenge a friend to a game of Foosball, try out your ping pong skills or simply relax and watch your favorite movie on the large flat screen TV.

Boredom is certainly not an option when you spend time walking around the large outdoor area whether the kids are playing tag on the expansive lawn (boasting over 18 acres), enjoying a bonfire in the outdoor fire pit, or relaxing on the large deck. Gather the group for a game of basketball or pickle ball. With 2 large pavilions, outdoor barbeques are a must! Tucked away for privacy, here you will find the tranquil setting that you seek but still be just a short drive to Wisp Resort and area shopping and dining.
