Report: I love allegany and I have been going there since i was 3 years old. I am 15 years old and I love to camp. I help my dad to pop up the trailer, but now we got a new 19 foot travel trailer. In 1997 we saw our first bear. A park ranger told us that they released a bear onto wolf run right outside of quaker. So we went there, and it was very beautiful, dams butterflies, and thick wilderness on every side. We saw something sitting on the side of the road I thought it was just a stump or a bench, but I was wrong it was the largest bear I have ever seen, we were so happy because we had been looking for bear for so long and we finally saw one in the wild.

Report: THE PLACE TO STAY FOR A WINTER TRIP IS SUMMIT TRAIL AT ALLEGANY STATE PARK. THE TRAIL HAS ABOUT 14 CABINS WITH ELECTRIC HEAT, A STOVE, FRIG, 2 BEDROOMS AND NICE COUNTER AREA (NO RUNNING WATER INSIDE THESE CABINS). THER IS THE MOUNTAIN SHOP WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE CABINS WHICH RENTS XC SKIS AND SNOW SHOES. MY SON AND I TRIED XC SKIING FOR THE FIRST TIME. THE ART ROSCOE XC SKI/MOUNTAIN BIKE AREA HAS WELL DEFINED TRAILS WITH VARIOUS DIFFICULTY LEVELS. THE MOUNTAIN SHOP HAS MAPS. STONE TOWER TRAIL IS ANOTHER WELL DEFINED TRAIL FOR SNOWSHOEING (DO NOT SNOWSHOE ON XC TRAILS). SNOWMOBILING IS VERY POPULAR IN THE WINTER WITH VERY NICE MAINTAINED TRAILS. OVERALL, JUST A GREAT TRIP. WILL DEFINATELY DO IT AGAIN.

Report: My grandfather used to take my father to Allegany every year, my father took us, and now we go every year, and have been going for as long as I can remember. I love Allegany, and count down the days every spring until we go again. I have done every activity the park offers, and learn as much as I can about this awesome park. Now our whole family goes every year; cousins, aunts, uncles, neices, nephews, grandkids, sisters, brothers, it is a family reunion!! We have family come from as far as Alaska just to camp at Allegany!! This is really a wonderful place to be, and it is my favorite place in the world. I would rather go here than anywhere else!!

Report: This is one of the best things about living in Western New York. I am almost reluctant to recommend this park because it is so much fun that I want to keep it all to myself. Since that is not possible, I want to say that everytime I stay in Allegany State Park, I have the best time ever! The last few years have been great for bear spotting - so be prepared with a camera!!!
