Quote: Allegany State Park is an annual trip for our family. I have visited on each of the 30 years of my life, and very often twice a year. For those who enjoy camping, this destination in upstate New York is fantastic.

Allegany State Park, and especially the Red House Camping area, is a great destination if you enjoy the outdoors. We travel there every year, and there is always something new to find. The park is excellent every time of year; May is great as the rivers are full, summer is prime season, and winter is wonderful for skiing (cabins are winterized).

It is always fun to rent boats for an afternoon. The boats are decent and the paddle boats are a new fleet. There are cool pontoon boats that we have not yet rented. They also rent bikes here.

Attraction | "Mountain Biking"

The bike trails at Allegany are excellent. They are groomed by the WYNMBA (Western NY Mountain Biking Association) and there are trails at three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. I could handle Beginner, and Intermediate was about my max. I had to walk a little bit, however my husband had no trouble pulling two kids in a bike trailer behind him. For those of you who enjoy biking, it is a fantastic stop in Western NY! Some cabins are right at the head of the trails, which are also used for skiing in the winter.
