Beautiful, huge park. Make sure you get a map of the park because there are lots of different roads! Could easily get lost! Pretty lake, lots of walking trails. Camping available. Picnic tables. The Red House has various activities, so check the schedule!

My family and I stayed in ASP at Cain Hollow and we had an enjoyable time for the most part. We tent camp and did find the sites to be rather close especially when young couples show up only to play drinking games most the night. But I was young once too. Did see black bears the two years we... More

Our family has camped at ASP for years, both in tents and in cabins at many different trails. The Ryan Trail is more rustic and Beehunter has nice secluded cabins. One thing we love to do is night fish off the dock at Red House Lake. We like the docks near the boat house. Using worms we catch large mouth... More

This is a well-developed park that is suitable to anyone. It has a good mix of history, nature and recreational facilities scattered throughout the park but everything is connected by three paved main roads with multiple access points into the park (either from NY or from PA). There are plenty of hiking and ski trails. You can also rent a... More

We were looking for a place to escape the heat while transitioning between Florida and Rochester NY. My parents took us "camping" in the cabins there starting in 1954. The cabins are still there, still rustic, still being used by thrifty families. Many of the park buildings are in need of repair. We are trailering our motorcycles and found the... More

The park is a ok park to go to. The park is nice to have cookouts at, walk around the lake, ride bikes, play on the playgrounds, the boats are nice to rent and stuff like that. You don't see many deer or anything, we went hiking on the trail at the end of Macintosh and got lost. We went... More

Went to exit 18, Allegheny reservoir. Plenty of campgrounds, picturesque view, cool breeze, forest trails to the water. Exit 19 has three lakes, swimming, fishing etc. Cost $6 per car. Reasonable.

I was excited to visit here and it did not disappoint. This is a large and very beautiful park. There are many trails of varying terrain around. If camping is your thing, there are multiple camp areas. Our weather was not great when we visited (raining on and off, sometimes heavily), so I would love to return in the future... More

We did some driving on the scenic roads here, and did the hike up to the Bear Caves. It was a very beautiful and relaxing place to visit. Had we more time, it would have been fun to explore more. We still really enjoyed our short day visit to this park. Don't miss the spillway at the dam. Beautiful!
