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.
