Deep Creek Lake Bowling

Time at the Alley is fun for the whole family! We are very kid friendly, even for the littlest in the family, with bitty rental shoes, ramps, light weight balls and automatic bumpers, so everyone can have fun!  We have a full restaurant with a children's menu, great food, beer, wine, desserts, and more.

Rainy day activities at Deep Creek Lake for the whole family can be found at The Alley in Oakland, just down the street from the intersection of Rte 219 and Rte 135, a block east of Southern High School!

The Alley is the only ten pin Deep Creek Lake Bowling Center, and the only bowling alley in Garrett County. We have bumpers and ramps for the littles, and shoes as small as toddler size 7! If you need slightly larger shoes, we have all the way up to Men's Size 18. If you forgot your socks...or wore your flip flops out today, we have some socks available for sale as well. 

Parties at the Alley are simple and fun for everyone. We have FUNdraising events regularly, in the way of bowling tournaments, Spirit Nights, special themed events and more. Field trips, STEM activities, and homeschool groups visit our center for learning AND fun! We often have meetings, team building events, holiday or annual parties, as well as family reunions and youth groups. Call us to host your next group event. We can work with you on a special menu, or offer our regular group pricing, which includes bowling, shoe rental, pizza and drinks for more than 20 attendees.
