Allegany State Park is New York’s largest state park and is known for its natural beauty. The park is in western New York, located in Cattaraugus County just north of the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. The park is divided into two sections: the Red House area and the Quaker Run area. The Red House Area is the northern half of Allegany State Park. Its attractions include Stone Tower, Red House Lake, the Thomas L. Kelly Covered Bridge, and the Tudor-style Administration Building. The Quaker Run area is the southern half of the park. Its attractions include Quaker Lake, Science Lake, an Amphitheater, and Thunder Rocks. Allegany State Park is a frequent destination for my husband and me, as the park is only an hour’s drive from our house.
