General Description

Rocky Gap State Park's Lake Habeeb offers year-round recreational opportunities. Boats are allowed on Lake Habeeb 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Navigational lights are required after sunset. Gasoline powered motors are prohibited. Two boat ramps are available in the park. Rental boats, including canoes, sit-on kayaks, rowboats and paddleboats, are available in the campground, day use area and from the Lodge.

Fishing is excellent in Lake Habeeb and is permitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The lake is home to largemouth bass, bluegill, brown and rainbow trout. A valid Maryland fishing license is required for those over 16 years of age and may be obtained from the camp store, local retail outlets or the DNR Licensing and Registration Service Center in Cumberland.

To help maintain a healthy fish population volunteers have added artificial fish habitat. Children's fishing programs are available throughout the summer season. A cooperative effort between Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Department of Juvenile Justice, Rocky Gap Volunteer Team, Appalachian Environmental Laboratory and the Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort has been ongoing to support the catfish population in Lake Habeeb.
