We just got back from a 1 night quick getaway to Allis and it was really great. The park rangers were very helpful and on top of things, We were unfortunately sandwiched between 2 groups of people partying and being loud. They had dogs off leash and their kids tried to ride their bikes through our campsite while we were eating dinner. We asked the park rangers to monitor this because we knew things were likely to get worse. They were totally on top of it. Our experience would have been ruined by these drunk, thoughtless, inconsiderate people, but the rangers didn't let that happen. We really appreciated them dealing with this so that we didn't have to.

This is a favorite State Park Campground for us to visit. It is small with only 18-sites and 8 lean-tos. Most of the sites are wooded but 5 are in a field. Some sites are tent-only which require a few steps from the parking spots to the tent spot. Make sure you ask or review the site info before reserving!

There is water spigots through-out and one bathroom. Each side has three stalls, two sinks and a pay shower. Nothing fancy but it gets the job done. Firewood is available, we paid $6 for 8-10 medium/small pieces which were well seasoned. Trash bins as you leave but they are kept locked for critter determent.

Each site has a picnic table, fire place (in various stages of usability, ours had no grill), a charcoal grill (but ours was severly tipped. I used a few rocks to keep the dogs from rolling off) and a chopping stump.

The staff came around occasionally on thier golf cart and the sites were well-raked.

There is a picnic pavilion, 3/4-mile nature trail, and a group tenting site.

This is a Beautiful Quite Country, State Park. A must visit if you are in the area. Great place to camp in the lean-tos.

We attended an event at Allis State Park this past weekend. We camped overnight at tent site #5 and attended a wedding reception under the pavilion. What a beautiful little park! Our campsite was very private, up on a little driveway off the main road. It was large, level, and had both a nice clean grill and a stone stove, which I understand was built by the Conservation Corps many years ago. There was a short trail through the woods from our site up to the pavilion, clearly marked by blue blazes.

There's a bathroom building a very short distance below our campsite, but the path to it was steep and rocky. If you go overnight, definitely bring a good flashlight for walking to the bathroom, or you could end up with some skinned knees or even a turned ankle if you're anything like me. ;-)

The pavilion is really nice--rustic, high-ceilinged, big enough for a small crowd, with power, tables and a concrete floor which can be used for dancing or other group activities. Two unisex bathrooms are on one end of the pavilion, around the corner from the main part. There are sinks and soap, but no towels of any kind, so bring your own or wipe your hands on your clothes. :-)

The fire tower is a stone's throw from the pavilion. It's 90 steps to the top; the views are worth it! Gorgeous all around, with signs at the top that identify each peak you can see. We went in June, but it must be even better in the Fall! It's windy up there, and the steps are quite steep. Children can climb but definitely shouldn't do it unsupervised, as they could fall out between the bars easily if they trip.

There's a nice wide-open field at the base of the tower and a second one adjacent to it (and a parking lot) that's great for games like volleyball, cornhole, badminton--whatever you care to bring. There's a horseshoe pit, too. I'm not certain if the horseshoes that were being used are provided by the camp office or not--I'd assume so.

The people at the "office" at the park entrance where you check in are very nice and were patient with our dumb questions, as we hadn't camped out in many years. They do rounds through the park a couple times a night and are available for noise complaints or emergencies by phone 24/7. (Some campsites are close together and voices do carry in such a peaceful venue, so be aware.) Quiet hours are 10pm-7am. The tent site was $18; a site with a lean-to is $25.

We didn't take part in any hiking this time, although I understand there's a .75-mile trail that has some steep parts in both directions.

We had a wonderful, clear night for sleeping, with lots of fireflies and hooting owls to enjoy. And we woke up to the sound of woodpeckers in the trees overhead. All in all, it was a really nice experience. I highly recommend it.

The foliage was popping with all kinds of oranges, reds, and yellows. We parked at the gate and walked up to th tower and through the campground. What an amazing day and special place to enjoy it!

Stopped here on a iffy weather day and were surprised at its beauty and great campground. Nice sites!

Fire tower was great, went on a .75 hike thru the woods that wasn't very special, but the place would be a great place to spend the afternoon for a private picnic with friends. Had a large picnic shelter with a fireplace nearby the fire tower too.

Peaceful.

Free admissions for day visits and nicely maintained. We stopped by to checkout the .75 mile trail. Glad we had good footwear. Started out behind the fire tower on a nice slightly up and down trail. Trail marked but not overused by hikers. Had a nice quiet hike until we headed down. Knowing what goes down must go back up we were glad it was a cool 65 degrees out. A lot of steep sections that may present a problem for the little ones or the older ones. Wear shoes with good support and traction. No vistas, but nice hike in the fairly open pine forest.
