  • I have been to Allegany State Park at least 70 times in my life, and this past weekend was one of my best trips ever. I was so impressed with the new Quaker Beach House and playground. The investment ...  more »
  • Allegany is another jewel among the great NYS park system. Lots and lots of trails for hiking, lakes for fishing and kayaking and even a nice restaurant to kick back, have lunch and gaze at the lake. ...  more »
  • Leaving Seneca Allegany I wanted to check out the park it was the day after hurricane force winds knocked down thousands of trees throughout NY and PA. You can drive all the way to PA to the Allegheny...  more »
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Took a ride around a small portion of the park. It's beautiful and very clean. The lake and primitive cabin area looks so welcoming. Found some really nice things for our grandchildren at the gift shop. They loved them.
  • Only red house section was open when I went. It has beautiful scenery and is fairly clean. Great place for family's to enjoy a day in the woods. Beautiful small waterfalls and lake.
