... The trail soon dried up and soon after we switched trails to a nicer actually paved trail, we pulled into town got some stuff and will soon be back on the road we hope to stay at a Yogi bear campground with a waterpark tonight ! We also went through 3/4 of a mile pitch black ...
... the Canal path which is not limestone and suppose to be muddy. We also saw the Mason-Dixon Line we are now in the south!! We biked on the CNO trail while it was raining we got to a campground and it was busy so we biked 6 miles through a river on our trail from all the rain the the next one. Total mile ...
Rain! It rained most of the day today we gave up and decided to bike through it. We had 19 miles to our campground in Rockwood when it started down pouring, the trail sunk and we went from going 11 miles to a high of 9 miles an hour. We finally got to the campground and everything was wet we decided to go to town to check out the hostal and get pizza. The hostal was empty so we are staying here tonight. Check out the photos for pictures from here and some animals we saw! 53 ...
... said something in his ear and then started running back to his seat with a smile on his face. After John Moss, our ringmaster, was apprised of the situation, he announced to the audience that the little boy told the Shriner he already had a bike of his own and he wanted them to pick another ticket so someone else could have it instead. The entire audience erupted into cheers and I wasn't the only one in the tent wiping away some tears (I'm tearing up just writing about it!).
We're in Grantsville, MD a day early so that the tent crew can set up the new tent that we finally received. It's beautiful and we're all so excited to finally have it!

Historical Traveler Reviews Rocky Gap Casino Resort Flintstone
I wasn't sure what to expect when visiting Rocky Gap. Basically I was looking for somewhere to stay while on business in the Cumberland area.
What a treat.
Our stay at Rocky Gap was fantastic. The service was great and the staff was wonderful! The smiling faces that we saw when we walked in were very welcoming. We chose to have dinner in the Resteraunt both of the nights we were there. The food was fanominal and the staff was great. They were very fast to seat us and came back to the table four or five times during our meal to check on us. We think this is the best stop for anyone looking for a great vacation. They have great prices and they again, have great service.
I was really nervous about going to Rocky Gap after reading some not-so-nice reviews. However, my husband and I found the resort to be beautiful beyond belief and just the right spot out of the hustle of DC.
Can't ask for a better way to ruin a perfect surrounding. Magnificent, dream-like scenary as you drive up to the reception area - then the nightmare began! We have booked a non-smoking room with a lake view (paid extra for the view) two months in advance only to come into a smokey room with strands of hair in the bathroom sink next to an semi-cleaned ash tray. When asked to move to another non-smoking room and kindly reminded the management that an ash tray is not really a standard ammenity in an non-smoking room, we were told that the entire wing is designated as smoking and they could not help if guests smoke in their room. The management was kind enough to move us to another less smokey room on the first floor with a view to the back of a tent, but refused to forfeit the premium - "the room, you see, is technically facing the lake", as we were told. We could not retreive messages left on our phone because noboby knew how, nor why, the message retreival system did not work. The prime-rib buffet was luke warm, and we had to cut our own portions as the server was nowhere to be seen. My wife wanted to book an appointment for a massage but was told that they were extremely busy and was fully booked until Monday (we arrived Saturday).
The staff was RUDE, uppity, and did nothing to correct the mistakes they made. We were put in a smoking room with no view, on the bottom floor. We had requested (and paid extra for )a 5th floor non-smoking room 6 weeks in advance! When I explained this to the staff I was told there is nothing that can be done about it. The bathroom was dirty, it looked liked someone had just finished showering, there was hair in the bathtub drain and in the sink. The curtains were so dirty and dusty that we had to wipe them with a damp towel to keep the dust from falling all over our paperwork on the table every time we opened the drapes. The dinner meal we chose was the Prime Rib Buffet. It would have been good, except there was no prime rib left! We got turkey instead. When we asked where is the prime rib, we were told, "The buffet will close soon"....so we asked then why did you SUGGEST the buffet??!! We ate cold mashed potatoes, coagulated gravy, and remnants of german chocolate cake...the bill for 2 people was $80.00! Ridicules!
After reading other recent reviews, I was a little concerned about our
I love it
I have been going camping at Rocky Gap since i was a baby. Just recently i took my first trip there my self with my boyfriend and I love it as much as I did when I was younger.
While this resort has posted it is a "four diamond AAA" resort, I think it should be re-rated.
We made a last-moment decision to stay at Rocky Gap Lodge as a treat for our two daughters as we were heading home from vacation.
The lodge rooms are nice and the scenery is breath taking but that's where it ends. Service is poor, staff are rude and food is EXTREMELY over priced. We had a $100 gift certificate to use in the restaurant. Our first meal (2 dinners and 2 coffees, no appietizer-no drinks-no desserts) cost $74 and were told that we could not get cash back or credit on our certificate. There is only 1 elevator in the entire lodge and, of course, our room was at the opposite end. We asked if we could be moved closer to the elevator (because my husband has health problems) and we were told NO. We had made reservations and paid (in full) for our room 2 months in advance. When we checked in, we were told that everything was paid in full. The night before we were to leave, a bill was slid under our door stating that we owed an additional $153 because of rate changes. If this were so, why not tell us when we checked in? Apparently others have had similar experiences with this establishment. For the 2 days that we were there (Fri and Sat), no more than 6 tables in the restaurant were full and no more than 20 cars on the parking lot. Plenty of people playing golf but not many staying in the lodge.The park and the surrounding area is beautiful and worthwhile to visit but I don't recommend staying at the lodge.
