Camping, Fishing, & Outdoor Fun in Grantsville, MD. Built in 1966, Little Meadows Lake and Campground in Grantsville, MD was the dream of John and Thelma Davies. After a life in coal mining, they worked hard to create a beautiful place for the community to gather to spend time with loved ones and to enjoy nature. The lake is home to many water birds and serves as a sanctuary for a variety of other wildlife as well, including bald eagles, bobcats, and bears. The facilities include a 100-acre lake, camping area, picnic pavilions, waterfront gazebos, and miles of hiking trails. Sadly, John and Thelma did not live long enough to enjoy the lake and grounds they put so much work and love into.
