Great place, so much to do
Aug 27, 2014 by: SabiandSafti from Boca Raton, Florida
So much to do, we went a couple times over 2 days. Ziplining was really fun, and our 5 year old absolutely loved the chipmunk zipline and ropes course. we all did the mountain coaster, and even the 3 year old loved it. We loved the extras like the life-size chess game. Disc golf was ok, but really it was a lot of hilly walking and probably too hard to be good at. We loved the Geo tracking at the top of the mountain, which we did on our own without a guide so we could shorten the trail for our crew. Wish we did the white water rafting but went speed boating elsewhere instead. Yes, its pricey, but we planned on that.

The 5 of us went on the Flying Squirrel zip line tour. There were 5 zip lines with rope obstacles in between. It was a lot of fun! Once you are on you have no choice but continue. The wind picks up high on the platforms! It was $49 each. A photographer took a bunch of pics. We got 8 of digital pics for $29.99 We went a 1 hour pontoon tour of the lake for $136. It was beautiful day. The tour guide gave us info on the lake and showed us the dam and some huge houses. We also did the mountain coaster. It was 3 times for $29. We definitely enjoyed our time there and the nice employees. Just prepare for the cost!
Outdoor adventure on the mountain

The kids absolutely LOVED the downhill alpine slide. My kids are 6 and 8, so they needed to go down with an adult (I think you have to meet height requirements AND be able to use the brakes). However, that didn't impair their fun or mine. It was a pretty quick ride, which was the only unfortunate part but it was great. The kids also did the rope course and they enjoyed it. Seems like the Squirrel course is best for kids up to about ages 6 or 7. The next level up really challenges the kids and starts with a climb that can be difficult.
Great summer fun

WISP has great attractions in the summer. The mountain coaster was a blast for all of us, including my 4 year old. My 6 and 8 year olds did the kids Chipmunk ropes course and then my adventurous 6 year old and I did the bigger ropes course. It was fun. We would love to zipline next time we come back. My parents rode the ski lift up and enjoyed the view. There is also a nice playground for the kids to enjoy there, as well as life size tic tac toe and chess over near the lodge. You can mountain bike down the mountain and play frisbee golf too- we saw lots of people doing that. Definitely worth a visit while at Deep Creek!
