New Germany State Park’s visitors frequently call it a “best kept secret.” This mountain gem is nestled between the 2,900 ft. Big Savage Mountain to the east and the eastern Continental Divide along Meadow Mountain to the west. Named by early settlers due to its resemblance to their homeland, New Germany has diverse forests with ten miles of multi-use trails and a small lake suitable for fishing, swimming, and non-motorized boating. This park is ideal for families and individuals looking to “unplug” from a tech-reliant society and escape from the busy pace of life in cities and suburbs.
There is no cell phone service at New Germany State Park. A pay phone is available at 474 McAndrews Hill Road, Grantsville, Maryland (across the road from New Germany Lake).
New Germany’s 48 campsites offer a shaded, safe, peaceful setting for a family camping trip. A central bathhouse provides restrooms and showers, and purified water is available at several locations. Several sites can accommodate large motorhomes; however there are no electric, water, or sewer hook-ups.
Pets are permitted in the Hemlock Loop, sites 50-58.
