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,…

This place is charming

Apparently lots of other folks agree, many seasonal campers here. Quiet tonight with only 4 or 5 empty spots. We arrived after closing but host drove me hind us. Seamless check in, easy hook up showers were very hot good pressure home made . Love it here 5+. Close to I80.

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…

Hidden Gem!

You really feel like you're camping when you're here!  The campsites are large and not crowded on top of each other.  There are woods between the sites which increases privacy and keeps it really quiet.

Buckaloons is right on the Allegheny River and there's a boat ramp onsite. If you're a paddler…

Beautiful grounds

Stayed for the 4th of July. Peaceful and well maintained. Hosts are extremely friendly as well. Plenty of space on each site for whatever you want. Only downside was no playground (apparently it was torn down after the onset of Covid) and the showers were a bit of a walk - both “issues” are easily…

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.

Okay campground

Overall a nice campground! The sites were nice and big. Our site was perfect!! There were very limited sites that had shade! A lot of their sites were in an open field. They had a huge pool that was advertised as heated but was so cold it felt like they dumped ice cubes in it. I wish they had more…

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!!!!
