Family Owned and Operated
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 enjoy the lake and grounds they put so much work and love into. Their family now operates the campground and lake in John and Thelma’s honor.

What is Little Meadows?
“Little Meadows is many things: a place written about by George Washington; an early land patent; a small stream that was once large enough for a grist mill; a sapphire lake set like a jewel in manicured green lawns; a tribute to a lady called ‘Johnnie’; a wildlife and nature refuge; a mini ecology fiercely guarded by John Davies; a charitable trust; where all races, people with handicaps, senior citizens, children learning and adults studying, all are equally welcome.”
