PARK INFO: Cachers may choose to camp overnight, the weekend or commute in for one or more events. People should make reservations early for campsites/cabins. It is also Victoria Day (Canadian Holiday) and the park is very busy. There is a two day minimum on cabins. Campsites are a 2-night minimum if you reserve. You can camp at the campground for one night if you walk in and take you chances. There is a fee to enter the park. Reservations can be made at 800-397-3234 at Reserve America.com . Those not interested in camping, the Holiday Inn can be reached at 716-945-7600 and you can also try the Dudley at 716-945-2002.
This event will be located on the Red House side of Allegany State Park. The Quaker Area is about a 20-30 minutes drive. For directions, I suggest taking I-86 to exit 19 into the Red House Area of Allegany State Park. Follow this road and use your GPS!
