SALAMANCA – Group Camp 5 in the Quaker area of Allegany State Park, refurbished in a $733,000 project under the NY Works Program, was reopened Thursday in a ceremony led by State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Commissioner Rose Harvey.

The renovation project replaced the camp’s dilapidated 90-year-old cabins with 18 new four-bed cabins.

In place of pit toilets, there is a modern bathroom with showers and a small laundry.

In addition, the central mess hall has been updated and improvements have been made to accommodate people with disabilities.
