It is not an artificial creation ala Disney World and others but a place where you can visit and enjoy the unspoiled world of nature. It is open year round and offers a wide variety of activities and opportunity. Generations of... More

This is a park that has only gotten better with age. My husband went as a child and now we go with our own children. The park has recently upgraded many of its bathrooms and facilities. There is so much to see and so many beautiful trails. We often see bears and osprey! A must for anyone who likes to... More

No trip to Southwestern New York State is complete without a stop at Allegany State Park. No matter the season, no matter the reason, even just a drive through the park is well worth the time. Do yourself a favor and see what all Allegany State Park has to offer!

We've coordinated snowshoeing with the ASP staff, guided hikes and geocaching. Camp Allegany has several buildings one being the mess hall with a full kitchen, pantry and ... board games! The lodges at... More

I don't know if I can write a review that does this park any justice. Simply put, if I could only vacation in one spot on the planet ever again, it would be Allegany State Park. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it isn't for everyone. I mean, it is still camping, the vast majority... More

Visited during the fall like I do every year. The most beautiful park I have ever been too during the fall foliage change. Great fishing, camping, hiking available.

I live at the foot of the mountains home to this park. I've been to many parks and the one I have enjoyed most frequently, of course, is Allegany State Park. And it's safe to say that I consider it to be a jewel, a feather, and a ribbon on Mother Nature's best hat. From the first time I went... More
