Deep lake

The majority of Deep Lake is located within Millersylvania State Park, and public access is provided via a boat launch in the park.  Since only "car top" boats can be launched, which prevents all but the smallest trolling motors, the lake is largely reserved for non-powered craft.  It's great for sea kayak practicing sea kayaking techniques.

Information for Leaders
