Quaker Run Area
The Quaker Run Area Snack Shack has closed for the season.
The Quaker Run 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. An extensive environmental education program is offered at the park.
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.
The old Quaker store has been completely restored and now houses a park museum. Interesting exhibits document the history of Allegany State Park as “The wilderness Playground of Western New York,” and orient visitors to the parks unique features and attractions, both past and present. Allegany’s mixed hemlock /hardwood forest, mountains, rolling hills and meadows, streams, ponds and lakes attract devoted outdoors enthusiasts year-round.
Quaker General Store will be closing on October 30th and reopening next May.
