Quaker Lake Launch & Fishing Dock

Share this

The Quaker Lake launch is on the North point of Quaker Lake in Allegany State Park. Great dock to fish from and a great place to launch your canoe or kayak from.


The dock at Quaker Lake is handicapped accessible for anyone looking to go fishing.

Fish for Trout, Bass, Northern Pike and Panfish all year! You could go ice fishing on this lake too!

Canoeing and Kayaking

Great place to practice canoeing and kayaking.


Rentals are available at this location, but across the lake at the Beach Area (seasonal). 


Gravel parking lot


There is no fee unless you go further south to the Allegany State Park entrance booth AND it is between the hours of 8AM and 5PM. The park is worth the cheap carload fee.


From I-86 Exit 18

While heading South on Quaker Lake Run (Rte. 280) before the Quaker Lake Dam on the left will be a gravel parking area.

From Allegany State Park

Head Northwest on Allegany State Park Rte. 3. Pass entrance / exit booths. On the North side of Quaker Lake and on the rightside of the road you'll find the Quaker Dam/Spillway. Several hundred feet past on the right will be the gravel parking area and dock.
