Canoe Camping Allegheny National Forest (7/25-7/27/18)

A fun, adventurous group of 4 set out for paddling, exploring, swimming, camp fires and plenty of laughs.  The Allegheny Reservoir is one of my favourite recreational areas offering a wide array of adventure for the outdoor enthusiast.  We spent a lot of time on our boats with beautiful sunsets, swimming, beach visits, wildlife observation and exploration of parts of the 91 miles of shoreline along the 24 miles body of water.  One of the highlights was a visit to an osprey nest to observe Mom and her chicks.  The end of the trip was visiting a couple of the many cultural and historical areas including Kinzua Damn and Kinzua Skywalk with it’s new Information &  Museum Centre.  This is a trip I would certainly like to repeat and hope to get more ADK’ers
