Long Description:
The 481-acre park features an Olympic-sized swimming pool, four large group pavilions, a gigantic recycled-tire playground, and a peaceful pond for fishing. Nearby, Dan's Rock Overlook affords a panoramic view of the surrounding region from a height of 2,898 feet.

Dan’s Mountain has four large pavilions available by reservation from April – November. One features a huge stone fireplace. Another has a panoramic view of the pond. Two pavilions are located in close proximity to the swimming pool.

Dan's Mountain State Park offers an accessible overlook, an accessible ramp to a swimming pool, bathhouse, and tire playground.

Dan’s Mountain State Park is named for Daniel Cresap, one of the first settlers in Allegany County. Daniel was known for being adventurous, often hunting with a Delaware Indian named Nemacolin. While pursuing a bear in a tree, Daniel fell and lay unconscious until Nemacolin found him, and dragged Daniel home to safety. Since that event, the mountain has been known as Dan's Mountain.
