The water is easy to find, bathrooms are available with showers, and the options are tents, cabins, or RV camping. Do not leave food out. The bears are very ambitious.
We camped here with one of our children, and hiked a couple of trails, that were beautiful!
After the last bad winter storm we had (2/2018) trees fell all over the park, including on my favorite hiking trails. Hemlock Hollow and Conservation Trails were grueling hikes this week, with a downed tree or 3 every 20 yards or so. There is cleanup going on, but it's going to be a while to make these trails relaxing and enjoyable again (as tough as it was, it was still enjoyable in hindsight… definitely not easy by any means, though).
This is our absolute favorite park to camp! You can stay in Red House area or Quaker Area. You have the option of staying on a tent site or in a cabin. Great fishing and hiking and lots of other stuff to do!
We go here in the fall or late summer, it’s a big park with lots of hiking and history to explore. There are 10 or so places to camp, from lean-tos to RV camping. We like to stay one night at a campground and another along one of the trails. It’s no so much backpacking as it is a 1-3 mile easy-ish hike. All the sites we’ve been to are nice and clean. There’s swimming in at least one lake but we’ve never gone.
I haven't been back to Allegany in some time, but my family frequented the park when I was younger. It's really an amazing place for a family trip since there are cabins! Our family of 6 fit comfortably in one cabin when we were all small. There's beaches, guided nature trails, biking, hiking. Basically, Allegany has it all. Do not miss the thunder rocks, they're really, really enjoyable.
This park is a fun place to hike and explore. Check out Thunder rocks and climb boulders the size of a house. The cabins are nice and seem to be well kept and quiet everytime I've stayed in them.
Loved all that you can do at Allegany!!
