Located within Garrett State Forest in Garrett County, Herrington Manor State Park's development began in the 1930's with the aid of the Civilian Conservation Corps. A 53-acre lake was formed by damming Herrington Creek, and ten cabins were erected on a wooded knoll above the lake. Herrington Manor was designed as a state park in 1964, and encompasses 365 acres. The park offers swimming, boating in rowboats, canoes, paddle boats and aquacycles, picnicking, hiking, tennis, volleyball and 20 fully furnished log cabins for rental use year round. Interpretive programs are scheduled during the summer; and popular special events such as maple syrup demonstrations, apple butter making and cross country ski races are held throughout the year. This is a Maryland State Park. For full information go to the official webpage. (Link on the right side)

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
January 25 great family vacation site by longtime cabin renter
A perfect day at Herrington Manor is spending the day swimming and boating on the lake, broken up by a walk with a naturalist, and a lakeside family cookout at sunset with the requisite dessert of some mores.
