There is a beach with ice cream stand, paddles boats, mini golf. Also a tennis and basketball court. Many walking trails up in the mountains.... More

Allegany state park is beautifully preserved. When you stay at a cabin you are latterly in the woods. There are two lakes and always something to do with guided nature walks. If you love to hike this park is a must. There are so many hiking trails through the mountains.

Stayed in Congdon Cabin 7 over New Year's weekend. Cabin was very well maintained, very clean. Can sleep 4 comfortably (single bunk beds), anymore than that would be pretty cramped. We chose cabin 7 so that we could be right across from the bathhouse, very glad we did! People in other cabins were driving to the bathhouse. Bathrooms are well... More

My husband and I spent the day driving and hiking at this state Park and we were very impressed. We really enjoyed the bear caves. We went at the end of November so all the leaves were off the trees, but it was still beautiful. I definitely want to go back in the spring when every tree is bursting with... More

This is a very nice forest with a lot of interesting plants and trees. Unfortunately it was impossible to get any book about them. There is also restaurant in the Park (Red House), but the service and food is poor. We have met a black bear on the Osgood trail.

We rent cabins every year....they are rustic but provide for basic needs while allowing opportunity to rough it. Wild life viewing fantastic during the week in the fall when park is quiet. Love this place!!

A very large park, 65,000 acres. Lots of woods and hiking trails. We stayed at the Redhouse area. Some very nice sites with privacy. Campsites for tents and trailers priced from $19 to $25. Cabins also available, w/o plumbing. Electric at most sites. Water NOT at sites but at each loop. Decent bathrooms at each loop with showers. Be prepared,... More

We rode down from Toronto to camp over night night in the State Park. The roads on the way, and in the park itself are perfect for motorcycling on a late summer / early fall weekend. We arrived in a rain storm, after the park office had closed, but the rangers directed us to open camp sites, and left us... More

A wonderful place to build memories and traditions. Hiking, biking, camping, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and so much more. Cabins and cottages for rent. Sites to rent for trailers and tents. Wildlife to see and friendly staff to assist.
