Bob and I visited Allegany State Park near Salamanca, New York this past Sunday. We visit the park frequently, as it is within an hour’s drive from our house. My blog posts this week will showcase photographs from all of our visits to Allegany State Park. The subject of today’s blog post is Red House Lake.
Red House Lake is a man-made lake. The 1.8-mile shoreline is mainly undeveloped and consists primarily of mowed fields with some wooded areas. Roads and a bike path encircle the entire lake. The lake serves many recreational purposes such as fishing (including ice fishing in the winter), boating and swimming.
There is a small boat launch at the northwest corner of the lake.
This photograph was taken at that boat launch.
Paddle boats, bicycle boats, rowboats and canoes can be rented for use on the lake.
I would like to one day rent a paddle boat and get out ON the lake.
See that beautiful Tudor-style building in the background? That building is the Red House Area’s administration building. It will be the subject of tomorrow’s blog post.
