Savage River Resevoir


This 360 acre reservoir is great for canoeing and fishing as no gasoline motors are allowed. It is intimate and just right for learning how to canoe and enjoying a relaxing time on the water. Access is available from the Big Run Campground and at the dam.


Savage River Reservoir is located in western Maryland south of New Germany State Park. Big Run State Park is located on the reservoir (Google directions below).
