Boat Auction & Donations

Our annual auction will take place on  June 8, 2024 at 9am at our park at 1249 Bumble Bee Rd Accident MD.​

Last year, there were over 60 bidders from 5 states bidding on over 30 boats. The event was a great success, raising funds for our Blind Skier and Camper Programs!

Come hungry! Food truck on site at 7am by Geohringer's Catering!

Are you dreading Busting Out Another Thousand to get your boat running this year? Ready for the second best day of a boat owner's life? Donate your boat to the Deep Creek Lake Lion's Club! We haul it away and you get the boat's auction value as a deduction on your taxes AND you'll be helping to support our Blind Skier and Camper Programs here at Deep Creek Lake.

We're always accepting donations of boats of all types, ATV's, snowmachines, and any other recreational vehicles you may have sitting around - we'll make sure you get the maximum deduction on your taxes for your donation. If you'd like to donate a boat, contact Chris at: 323 325 5466 or
