If you still have not had the chance to paddle deep creek lake up in western MD you should try and plan a day to go!! It can get crowded on weekends so the best time to paddle up there is during the week or early on weekend mornings but it is worth the drive. The water is clean, the mountain views are some of the best in MD and you always see tons of wildlife. This past weekend I saw tons of deer, eagles, and even saw about 25 carp breaking the water in the shallows looking for food. Wish I had a fishing rod on me, I have never seen that many fish breaking in shallow water. The state park has a great sandy beach that you can launch from and it only costs $2 to enter.
