Here Are 10 Of The Most Beautiful Lakes In Maryland, According To Our Readers

Maryland as a state is filled with natural beauty, its rivers and lake areas are no exception. However, Maryland is the only state without any remaining natural lakes. Most lakes in the US, around 74 percent, were created when huge glaciers passed through the region over 25,000 years ago. Since Maryland did not see any glacial activity in the last great ice age, no natural lakes were formed.

That being said, Maryland does have 280 reservoirs that would feel pretty left out if we didn’t admire their beauty. With so many beautiful reservoirs found in Maryland, it’s hard to choose a favorite, so we polled our readers on our Only In Maryland Facebook page to come up with a list of ten of the best lakes in Maryland. Shall we take a dip and see which one is your favorite?
