Deep Creek Dunk

Deep Creek Dunk

The Deep Creek Dunk is a favorite winter tradition in the Deep Creek Lake area. Spectators watch as “dunkers” brave the icy waters of Deep Creek Lake. This year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of this amazing event that benefits Special Olympics Maryland. The dunk is held in cooperation with the Maryland State Police and Natural Resources Police. Taylor-Made is not only a sponsor, but we have a history of dunking too!
