Project Description

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.

Herrington 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.

“I had the best time there. I went with my friends and we had a blast. We went down to the lake/beach, we went on hikes, we also went to the Rock Maze! But the best part is when we saw the waterfalls at Swallow Falls. My friends and I, all found great hiking sticks. I remember getting mine out from between rocks at the waterfall. It was an overall amazing experience!” – Mackenzie Faith Rodriguez via Google Reviews
