Butterflies on thistle in Sand Run State ParkPark Information

This 81 acre farm was left to the state of Maryland in 2001 by Mr. John “Jack” Hinebaugh. In 2009, the State of Maryland officially took ownership of Friend’s Delight and it is now known as Sang Run State Park​, a proud extension of Deep Creek Lake State Park. Friend’s Delight is full of Garrett County history, lore and tradition. The property’s name alone sets the stage. In the late 1700s General George Washington’s men were surveying Garrett County. While working on the survey, they camped on John Friend’s property. Mr. Friend would take no money from the men. When the surveying was complete, they asked Mr. Friend to accept the gift of 100 acres as their way of thanking him. He replied, “Why I’d be Delighted!”
