Get Back to the Flow
Rivers, lakes, and streams - if you crave water, then head to our mountains. The Potomac River forms the entire southern border of Allegany County and provides a cherished recreational amenity with stunning scenery and mild rapids, making for an easy float or paddle for any level. Separated into three sections for public access, the Potomac River is perfect for anything from short two-hour float trips to all-day excursions. Rocky Gap State Park is home to Lake Habeeb, a 243-acre lake fed by Rocky Gap Run. Enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding as well as swimming, with access to two public beaches and a private camping beach.
