The Red House Area is known for the historic tudor-style Administration Building and everything centrally located around the Red House Lake. It offers 5 miles of paved bike paths, boat and bike rentals, a sandy beach for swimming, fishing and snowmobiling. Feel free to exercise by walking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, playing softball tennis, horse shoes or even a game of volleyball. The Administration Building features a natural history museum, regional headquarters and a gift shop. Thunder Rocks is an impressive bedrock city that allows for the nature lover to see the hidden beauty that this park is known for. The Stone Tower structure shows vistas of the rolling hills of mature forests. The many beaver ponds are a good place to observe the diversity of wildlife located in the park.
Campers are offered anything from a weekend retreat to an extended vacation with a total of 125 campsites, 144 cabins, 128 of them winterized and two group camps for rent. The Pitt Cottage is Allegany's vacation rental. Reminiscent of a classic hunting lodge, the cottage offers the same amenities as the Fancher Cottages in the Quaker Area. Located on Allegany State Park Rte. 2, the cottage is adjacent to Congdon Trail and three miles from the Administration Building. Please note: Pitt Cottage is not accessible.
