On our return from Newfoundland-Labrador this past July, we made a deliberate stop at Allegany State park to camp for one night. We are so glad we did. This park is truly one of a kind. There is so much to see and do! The roads are great. The campsite was clean and secluded. The main administration building was really... More

I honestly don't know how to put my love for Allegany State Park into words. It is truly one of my favorite places in the world. I have been staying at Allegany with my family several times per year for about 20 years. It is a wonderful family tradition. I have also camped in Allegany many times with groups of... More

We went swimming in the lake at the Quaker area, and only visited that one small part of this huge park that spans from PA to NY. $7 entry free per vehicle. The road through that part of the park provides lovely vistas, but so does the whole area around and outside the park. The bath house was clean and... More

Enjoyed exploring the park even though it was raining a lot during our drive through. Worth a visit on a sunny day. Can't wait to be back and experience this in the fall!

Beautiful place. It had been years since I visited. We had a picnic, kids did the paddle boats, wrapped it up with an ice cream!

We just returned from two days of hiking at Allegany State Park. This is a beautiful area and lots of choice trails, some far more difficult than others. Most of park staff were very helpful except for one at the Red House Lake area. She had never been on any trail and could not help answer any questions about rentals... More

This is in our back yard but every time we have friends over we take them and they love everyplace we show them. Even hidden gems that others don't know. October is the most beautiful but a great place to camp and fish also

Been Camping and traveling Allegany State Park for many years. Very nice place with nice amenities and facilities. Nature is kind here with lakes, fishing, hiking, kayaking and just a nice park to enjoy. We like to Geocache and Camp here. We tent camp but there are cabin or trailer sites available.

During the off-season, there isn't much to do, nor even much to see from the road. We drove from the Salamanca entrance to the Bradford, PA exit. But, we did enjoy the majestic views for the first time through. There appeared to be hundreds of cabins, interesting water features, elevation changes, tens of thousands of trees, a couple of visitor-frequented... More
