We love pets at Allegany Mountain Resort! We are definitely a pet friendly resort. Of course, we have some rules for the protection and safety of everyone concerned.  Please follow the rules and your pet dog is welcome to join you. We ask that you only have a maximum of two (2) pets allowed per site. Pets need to be on a leash at all times and are not allowed to run free. Pets must be cleaned up after they soil. They must be kept quiet from prolonged barking so neighbors can enjoy their peace and quiet. Please do not leave your dogs unattended or home alone in the resort. You are the source of your dog’s energy, and you are their role model. Please be courteous and respectful of your neighbors who want to enjoy their restful vacations too.

Allegany Mountain Resort does offer a great opportunity for those looking for a semi-permanent site to enjoy our gorgeous resort for the season, on an available basis. Campers can have the opportunity to enjoy your very own “always reserved campsite”. You may choose a site that will be your own for years to come without the hassle of hauling an RV in and out during the season. Snowbirds rejoice! We have many members who stay in our resort all summer and travel south for the winter. For more details on site availability, please call the Resort at (716) 699-2352 or click here.
