Allegany State Park reviews
Whenever we stay at Seneca Allegany Resort we always take a ride through the park. Many excellent spots to stop and enjoy the Views. Very Peaceful and Relaxing. more »
Very scenic, very serene and peaceful place if your looking for a getaway. Many hiking trails for all skill levels. A little bit of something for everyone more »
Where else can go on a family vacation and create great memories for such a great price. The Allegany cabins take the worry of money out of the equation. Every cabin has it's own charm. ;) Some of the trails have nicer bathrooms than others. Yes, it DOES make a difference! The Anderson trail has 17 cabins, each cabin CAN have up to 6 people and ONE shower to accommodate. Luckily for us, we went during the off season and there were less 4 cabins rented for most of the week. My wife and I have been going for years. Most years, twice a year. We always bring way too much to eat and drink and half the comforts of home. (And we usually have lots of guests.) We like the outdoors, from what we can see from the front porch! :) :)
Always a great day at the park.. This place has two wonderful sides, Quaker and Red House. Both have great lakes for swimming or kayaking, camp stores, plenty of hiking and bike trails, cabins from the basic to full bathroom and tent sites with plenty of cover from sun and neighbors. How can you not love it?
