  • This is my first time to the park in the summer, previously we passed through on the snowmobiles. This is a big park where we took our vehicles everywhere to see things, things are really spread out. There is a nice paved walking path around the Red House lake where you can ride a bike as well. The beach is rather large and clean. While we were there, we visited Thunder Rocks and the Stone Tower. It's easy to get in and out of the park from the main highway. Everywhere we went, it was clean. The employees we talked with were very nice, and their general store is rather convenient. Prices are slightly elevated from your big box store but that's to be expected.
  • Excellent park! My favorite in NY. Nothing beats Allegany. Wonderful park. My favorite spot in park is Quaker because it's more remote. Science Lake is beautiful. Trails are awesome and there's a big assortment so if you aren't a hiker you can also find flat easy trails. Such a great place. My only complaint is some of the campers, people need to realize animals belong in nature and we have to coexist with them so stop complaining about bears and animals. It's their land. The campers could learn a thing or two from people out west, no one calls police or complains about wildlife here.
  • Have been camping there since I was a kid. Love taking my kids and Hubby. We prefer the Quaker side and live Gypsy Trail and Indian, by the creek. Such a great value and a fantastic way to spend a week as a family.
  • The park was great for a family day. With plenty of easy to moderate hikes there is something for everyone. The lake area is excellent for a nice picnic or some kayaking. While this isn't a destination for serious hikers, it's a nice place to stop for a few hours and to nature.
  • Wonderful getaway with the family. Cabin was great, fishing was great and of course swimming on the beaches. Had a blast with all the fun things to do!
