We recently visited Allegany State Park for the first time, spending 3 nights in a cabin on the Quaker Lake side, and overall, the place really exceeded my expectations. The trails in the park are plentiful, and the trailheads are very clearly marked with large signs. The ones we walked were fairly well maintained, and there's lot of variety. We... More

Recently went to Allegany State Park specifically to hike. My husband and I have hiked parks around the world, we plan our vacations around hiking. We decided to hike the Beehunter trail and were appalled at the condition of what could be a great trail. Trees blocked the trail in so many places we lost track at the number of... More

I would like to start with the fact that I love this park and have been cabin camping here for 30+ years. We go every fall for a long weekend and just relax and enjoy nature. With that being said.... I need to WARN ALL WOMAN that while I was taking a shower at the Fancher facility in the Quaker... More

Rented this cabin for Labor Day weekend: Friday, August 29 through Monday, September 1, 2014. Felt lucky to get it. Had electricity, a fridge, a 4 burner stove and an oven. Also had 4 cots, the mattresses on which happened to be very soft and uncomfortable. The cabin is immediately adjacent to the parking lot of the amphitheatre, which is... More

We are recent transplants to New York and spent every weekend this summer exploring our new 'Home State'. Allegany State park was last weekends stop. We've always been tent campers, but rented a cabin in the Quaker area. It was nice to have a fridge and electricity. The 4 Cots were comfortably and room was ample for the two of... More

I have been camping In Allegany for years and it is one of the most beautiful places I know. There are almost endless things to do for any age group. Recently we stayed on Creekside trail with the creek about 8 feet from our front porch. It is amazing that after going there for over 35 years we can still... More

On a cycling vacation in the area, we had a route we wanted to do through the park. The Red House, situated on the lake, was the start of our trip. Parking here, we made our way through almost car free paved roads , toured the museum , sleeping cabins, RV camping sites, gift shop and enjoyed epic climbs through... More

For 10 years my best friend and I took our sons to Allegheny for Halloween (and other times of the year). We have so many pictures and memories of our children growing and changing. Between the fabulous colors, the many trails, the friendliest people and the rustic cabins, these are some of my best memories of my child's growing years.... More

Stayed in very nice cabin on Anderson Loop near Red House Lake and the administration bldg. Very clean, many electrical outlets (even on porch), full size fridge. Bathrooms were clean but one shower for whole loop a little inadequate and marginal, I showered by swim areas in the big bath houses. Quiet at night in this area.
