Property Map

Wild Yough is located in Southern Garrett County, Maryland very close to Herrington Manor State Park, Swallows Falls State Park, and the quaint mountain village of Oakland.  The property adjoins thousands of acres of Garrett State Forest and hundreds of acres of state land along the Youghiogheny River.  The world class Wisp resort and Deep Creek Lake are only minutes away.  Wild Yough Glamping huts are part of more than 350 acres of private land, most of which is crisscrossed with hiking and biking trails.

  1. Hi folks! Is there anywhere on the property that you recommend for sunrise or sunset photos. We’ll only be there for 2 mornings and 2 nights, so any direction would be welcome. Thanks!

    • Hey Karen –

      Sunsets will be easy for you at the Glamping site. I think that the best “big sky” sunset will be in the front field. To get to the field, go back up to the Glamping entrance and walk to the right along Herrington Manor Road. There is a large field here and if you go to the bluff at the far end of the field you should be able to see “big sky” all the way to the windmills on Backbone Mountain and great sunsets (maybe a 10-15 minute walk from Glamping). For the best sunrise, you’ll need a little more energy 🙂 If you take the trail by the “original glamping hut” straight back to the edge of the ridge you should get okay sunrise views through the trees (depends on how many leaves are left). But if you take the trail from this ridge down to the river, I’d highly recommend “Crooked Butt Bench”. (down the hill, right at the T, left at the next T, then there is a small sign on the left at the bottom of the hill. This short trail leads to the bench). From here you have a great view over the river and you should see a great sunrise. If the temperature differentials are right, then there will be mist rising from the river. Look for otters here – I’ve seen them many times early in the morning. This is more of a hike – about 1 mile over hilly terrain…but well worth it. Hope you get some great photos! Dan

      • Enjoy your time at Wild Yough! As a side note, when you are at Crooked Butt Bench, instead of taking the path back, follow the small creek upstream. You’ll see some great little waterfalls and some old growth hemlocks. Take the fork in the stream to the left and reconnect with the path back to the Glamping huts.
