Campground Overview
Allegany State Park is located in the south western region of New York State, located in Cattaraugus County just north of the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. The park is divided into two sections: The Red House Area and the Quaker Run Area. It lies within the Allegheny Highlands forests ecoregion. The Red House Area is known for the historic tudor-style Administration Building and everything centrally located around the Red House Lake. It offers 5 miles of paved bike paths, hiking trails, boat and bike rentals, a sandy beach for swimming, and fishing. The Red House campground features 130 campsites. The Quaker area is known for its lake and wonderful camping experiences with 189 campsites and larger more private sites than Red House. It offers a sandy beach for swimming, two fishing piers and a canoeing or kayaking access point. Friend's Boat Launch makes the Allegany Reservoir available to the boating enthusiasts. The many hiking trails give opportunities to explore the naturally formed caves, plus the diversity of plants and wildlife. Many come to relax with the programs offered at the Quaker amphitheater, by picnicking, or just letting the children spend time on the playground. There are horse shoe pits, baseball fields, basketball, volley ball and tennis courts.

Dave's Tips

Allegany is a huge park with 2 campgrounds, Quaker and Red House which are a 45 minutes drive apart. Each campground is near a small lake, and each has a beach within a short driving distance from the campsites.

Quaker Beach
Quaker is a bit more out of the way than Red House but has larger sites with more buffer between them than Red House. There are many great large/deep private sites at Quaker, as well as newer bathrooms in Loop B. Lots of sites are up along the side of a hill so entry ways can be a bit more challenging for those with trailers. Lower sites (Cain Hollow Loop B) are more level than the other loops. Cain Hollow Loop A is in an open field on the side of a hill with few trees. The beach requires driving too but is quite nice with modern facilities.

Red House Beach
Red House is a busier campground than Quaker with smaller sites and less buffer between neighbours. Consider this area more social than the private sites of Quaker. Sites at Red House are much more level with easier access than many of the sites at Quaker. Red House Loop A sites are in the open and very close together. The beach is a short distance but still requires driving too and features canoe, kayak and paddle boat rentals. Several historic buildings in and around the Red House area.
