The Perfect Spot

We have a camper, but wanted to take the kids tent camping for a change, and this was the perfect place. It’s first come first serve, but we lucked out with a huge spot, shady, right beside the gorgeous creek, and also the closest to the toilet (which did occasionally send a slight scent our way,…

Clean beautiful campground

We loved this campground! We were back in the electric only campground area right on the creek. It was very quiet back there and water fill on your way in. The creek makes the most beautiful flowing sound.

The pool was clean and the kids loved swimming in it

I was thankful for laundry room to…

Nostalgic

My family has headed to this spot for years… it family friendly, has decent fishing, miles of trails, and a small beach. Also zero cell reception! Check out Kinzua dam and Jakes Rock nearby.

Great Spot

We loved it here. I hiked in with my kids. Easy hike and doable with kids if they are used to hiking. Lots of spaces, but it can get crowded on the weekends. The vault toilets were convenient. It is bear territory so brought a bear cannister, but I didn't hear of anyone having any issues.

Laid back

Nice little campground. Very quiet. Sites are generously sized. Roads are paved. The lake is very small with a swimming beach area.

Allegany, Quaker Lake

Went in June, they were basically just opening. Grass wasn’t cut, got nasty bites from chiggers. Quaker store had essential gear but it was left over from last season. Just wouldn’t recommend going in June. Save it for July or August.

Gangs of unruly kids on bikes

We used to enjoy this campground. Nice paved roads inside, fairly level sites depending on location. Some sites are very private and others are open with no privacy. In the back loop the sites are set up for group camping, so if not traveling with multiple friends/family with campers avoid those…

Try to stay once a year

This has become a very popular campground and reservations fill quickly. We usually try for an entire family outing here once a year in October. Very nice, clean campground on the river. We have stayed in sites and a cabin, but never one of the yurts. Family friendly and not overly crowded.

  • in side on one of the cabins along the river.

Really cool, remote spot

Arrived to a nearly empty campground. Only a few people on a weekday.

No firewood on site, so bring it with ya. Really good, cold water from the well!

Little bit of Verizon coverage.

Bad news - Gypsy moths are everywhere!!!!

Small, quiet and dispersed

Limited sites. Must call District office for permit, but still free. Vaulted toilets. There is a swimming hole in the small creek that’s great! Kids loved it! Also the river is just down on 555 with a kayak launch. An elk viewing plot is just across from the kayak launch site/ parking lot. Not far…

  • Entrance to the right. I believe this is site 5 with tents to the left and parking for tents.

Good campground

Overall a good campground that I would stay at again. Almost every site had plenty of trees and shade, plenty of shower houses throughout so not a long walk whichever site you choose. The bathrooms were the older style shower house could use some updating. The not so good is alot of the sites…

Popular Location

Overall a comfortable One night stay. Sites were tight. Three bath houses available. Depending on where you’re at - it’s a very fast run if u need it quickly.

Staff was very accommodating to our requests and needs. Professional. Employees were friendly and helpful.

Grounds were kept nicely.
