The Deep Creek Lake Discovery Center is found at Deep Creek Lake State Park. This educational venue is for people of all ages and is a great way to explore the Deep Creek Lake area. Learn about the wildlife, historical heritage, and more about this popular vacation destination.
You can also walk through hands-on exhibits that focus on the natural resources found in Western Maryland. Different programs like campfires, talks, and hikes occur throughout the year. There’s even an "outdoor classroom" at the aviary. Take a walk out to the aviary to check out some birds of prey. Each of the birds were injured, rehabilitated, and deemed non-releasable into the wild. Now, through the Scales & Tales program, you can view these amazing creatures up close. Don't forget to stop by the Nature Shop for some gifts, toys, and souvenirs. Contact the park or visit their website for specific hours and special programs going on at the Deep Creek Lake Discovery Center throughout the year.
