Allegany State Park’s 65,000 acres, most of it primitive woodland, make it the largest state park in the system with sand beaches and hiking and nature trails that do double duty for horseback riding, biking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The Quaker area is known for its two lakes and wonderful camping experiences. It offers a sandy beach for swimming, two fishing piers and a canoeing or kayaking access point. Friend’s Boat Launch makes the Allegany Reservoir available to the boating enthusiasts. The many hiking trails give opportunities to explore the naturally formed caves, plus the diversity of plants and wildlife. Many come to relax with the programs offered at the Quaker amphitheater, by picnicking, or just letting the children spend time on the playground. If you enjoy sports, you can use our horse shoe pits, baseball fields, basketball, volley ball or tennis courts. The old Quaker store has been completely restored and now houses a park museum. The two campgrounds and 20 cabin trails offer a total of 189 campsites and 230 cabins, 30 of them winterized and one group camp for rental. The Quaker area also has vacation rental cottages.
