Snowmobile, in the Enchanted Mountains of Cattaraugus County, on over 450 miles of trails throughout the county and Allegany State Park, the largest state park in New York State.

Snowmobile at Allegany State Park

Enchanted Mountains is home to the gorgeous Allegany State Park, considered the largest park in New York State and the third largest park in the nation.  A number of cabins line the trails and are easily accessible and affordable to everyone - just in case you'd like to extend your stay. 

Try the new Group Camp 5, perfect for your snowmobile club.  Houses up to 72 people in 18 newly remodeled cabins complete with table, benches, heater, 4 bunk style beds and space to breathe.  Also in Camp is a mess hall with 14 benches, 3 upright refrigerators, one freezer and everything you need to make your meals.  The facilities are worth mentioning as well, 7 individual showers, three of them being handicap accessible.  Call 1 800 456-2267. 

Whether you're riding through Allegany State Park's popular Thunder Rocks, or you're enjoying the open trails and the serene landscape views, there's days worth of experience and adventure to be had.  The park is considered one of the most well-groomed areas to snowmobile and enjoy everything that winter in Cattaraugus County has to offer.  So don't miss out!
