Overlooking the lake is Evitts Mountain, named for an early settler in Allegany County.
Rocky Gap offers a 278-site campground, 10 mini cabins, four pavilions, two boat ramps, three swimming beaches, boat rentals, a nature center, and a camp store. Fishing in the 243-acre Lake Habeeb, home to panfish, trophy trout, and large and small mouth bass, is excellent and permitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
