Herrington Manor State Park

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.

the lake at Herrington Manor State ParkHerrington Manor was designated as a state park in 1964, and encompasses 365 acres. The park offers swimming, canoeing, kayaking, picnicking, hiking, tennis, volleyball and 20 furnished log cabins for rental use year round. Interpretive programs are scheduled during the summer; and popular special events such as maple syrup demonstrations and apple butter making are held in the spring and fall of the year.

Phase II Cabin Renovation Project

Beginning July 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016, Cabins 4 through 13 at Herrington Manor State Park may be closed during these dates as a result of planned renovation projects. Due to the nature of the work and that plans are still being developed, interested persons should frequently check back to see if any cabin may have been re-opened. Plans may change as to how the cabins will be worked on and/or may be re-opened once the work is completed. For additional information, contact Herrington Manor at 301-334-9180.
