My family and I just completed a winter camping trip to Allegany. We have been there in the summer but wanted to try icefishing the 2 lakes there. We rented a cabin and had a very good time. I was a little upset at the writing and name gouging that was done to the walls of the cabin but it... More

The sights at this Historic NYS park can be breathtaking. Fall is one of the more popular times though the park is active throughout the year. Ski trails to great trout fishing onto white water rafting. The friendliness of the staff will make your stay even more pleasurable. Affordable cabin rates or RV parking can make your stay affordable. Bird... More

Nice trails to walk in the park....most are not dog friendly for the terrain is rocky, uphill. Cabins are rustic but well worth the bargain price.

Such a pretty lake surrounded by hills and woodlands! Enjoyed the Tornado area hike, Thunder Rock area and Stone Tower; would have liked history plaques at TR & ST. Good lunch at Administration Bldg. with older, but very nicely done animal exhibits. Lots of rustic cabins to rent and horse trails. A beautiful park to not only enjoy the many... More

We spent one full day driving a planned route through some of the major sites of the forest near Bradford, and it was just lovely. A couple of small hikes, a stop to eat, and before we knew it, it was dark. Next time we will allow at least two days. Breathtaking views and nice locals.

Although nice to look at, the camping facility is a bit run-down. The campground does not have an adequate number of wash houses for the number of campsites. What is there is not in good repair. They are in need of renovation. The boat area has a miniature golf course that is in ruins. Apparently the lake has algae blooms,... More

For some R and R, visit this lake, jump on a paddle boat and see nothing but nature and do a little fishing. We didn't catch anything, but still had an awesome time and the kids did too. Also visit the lodge that was built in 1928 that is on the back side of the lake and has a nice... More

Second largest state park in NY, 2 lakes, hiking, camping, scenery galore, both winter and summer. Great cross country skiing in winter, canoeing, swimming , hiking and camping, not to mention great picnic areas and summer programs. Check out the gorgeous administration building..gift shop, etc. Close to Salamanca and Casino, Ellicottville and restaurants. Really beautiful place to enjoy nature.

We did 2 short hikes and saw a mother black bear and her 2 babies on the 2nd one. We also swam in the lake, which had a beach and lifeguards.
