Take the Virtual Tour! - ALLEGANY STATE PARK - QUAKER

Take the Virtual Tour! - ALLEGANY STATE PARK - RED HOUSE

65,000-acre Allegany State Park is known for its primitive, forested valleys, un-glaciated landscape, fall leaves, and wildlife. The park's two developed areas, Red House and Quaker, make this the largest state park in New York. Both areas offer sand beaches, picnic areas, museums, hiking trails, and naturalist walks. Walkers, runners, and bicycle riders can take advantage of the five miles of paved trails around Red House. The Art Roscoe Ski Touring Area has some of the finest groomed cross country skiing and mountain bike trails in the Northeast. Snowmobilers are attracted to Allegany State Park for its 90 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and over 150 winterized cabins. Other activities include bird watching, picnicking, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, canoeing, and horseback riding.


Allegany State Park is located in western New York, in Cattaraugus County, just north of Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. The park is divided into two sections: The Red House Area and the Quaker Run Area. The Red House Area's attractions include Stone Tower, the Summit Fire Tower, Red House Lake, Bridal Falls, and the Art Roscoe Ski Area. The Quaker area's attractions include Quaker Lake, the Mount Tuskarora Fire Tower, hiking trails, Science Lake, Bear Caves, Thunder Rocks, and the Quaker Amphitheater.


Activities include beach swimming; boating; fishing; hunting; horseback riding; biking; hiking; walking; visiting the museum; tennis, baseball and softball on the playing fields; and, in winter, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. Most park activities are accessible to disabled visitors.


Visitors looking for anything from a weekend retreat to an extended vacation are able to choose from Allegany State Park's 424 campsites, 375 cabins, and three group camps, all of which are accessible to disabled visitors.

The seven Fancher Cottages, named for Senator Albert T. Fancher, are fully-equipped, year-round vacation cottages and are also handicapped accessible. Reminiscent of a classic hunting lodge, the Pitt Cottage in the Red House Area offers the same amenities as the Fancher Cottages but is not handicapped-accessible. The park also offers a gift shop, picnic pavilions, and showers.
