“Exhilarating experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

A great place to enjoy over the summer. Family friendly area, a multitude of rides and attractions. Enjoy the sun, get a thrilling experience on some rides, or get wet in a variety of water rides or the water park. Then you can enjoy some good and drinks, then top of the amazing day with the laser light show every night!

The campground spacious and the price is great if you get the theme park entry with it. We stayed 1 night for $90 for all 4 of us. The picnic tables are in decent shape. Campfire's are wild rock lined areas. Most campsites have electric and water.

Room Tip: If you're going to the amusement park, there is no need to get a campsite near the park. You ca...

This place is amazing!! My family went to Darien Lake the last week of August 2013, We booked 2 nights at the camping site. The check-in process went smoothly no complaints the staff was very friendly - the first night we had a wonderful time to spend with the family enjoying the rides and the laser show plus all the camping experience, Day 2 we woke up to stormy wet weather we spent a few hours at the arcade to pass the time which the kids really enjoyed, towards late afternoon we went back to our camp site and quickly realized our camp site looked like a lake all around it and our tent was completely soaked our sleeping bags, air mattress were all wet - not fun at all!!
My husband went to accommodations and explained our situation if we can book 1 night at the hotel, the staff was awesome and very accommodating they gave us a room at the hotel we were so grateful.............We would like to say a Big THANK YOU TO THE STAFF AT ACCOMADATIONS!!!

Looking forward to next year trip at Darien Lake...... lets hope no rain this time :)

Our first visit to the park was so great we went back 4 weeks later for another 2 days. Both times we stayed on the grounds. The first time in a trailer and the second time was in the park hotel. We will be going back again but this time we will stay in the cozy looking cabins that wrap around the lake. It was a trip that brought my family closer together and it has a special place in all our hearts. Thank you to the entire staff at Darien Lake for a great summer get away.

We spent two nights tent camping at Darien Lake in the third week of July. We had such fun and the theme park as your neighbour is amazing (during the day). The rides were great, the shows were a blast and the workers were very safety conscience.

Only 4 stars because of the noise. There is an evening laser show every night and that, along with a close by and busy railroad track made for less sleep. The show was over around 11pm but the trains go ALL night and it just echos through the area.

We enjoyed the water park, but one main set of slides was under repair.

We would go again!

We stayed at Darien Lake Sept 6-8 and even though we had terrible weather on Saturday, we wish we could have stayed the week as we had so much fun! There is something for everyone and all ages. We stayed in an RV with slide out, which included a gas barbecue, full fridge, stove and microwave. The RV was used but clean (I brought Lysol spray just in case and sprayed the beds) but we cannot complain. We were 2 adults and 2 children ages 5 and 7. The kids loved the bunk beds! The amusement park was fantastic. My husband specifically loved being able to drink beer in the park! There were plenty of rides and not a line up longer than 5 minutes for any of them! Saturday night, the kids were able to stay on a ride 6 times in a row because there were no other kids in line!

We had a fantastic time and can't wait to book our trip next year to Darien Lake! One tip, buy firewood prior to entering the campgrounds...there are signs at people's houses on the way to the campground so be sure to stop and grab some prior to, otherwise you will pay $7 for a minimal amount of wood at the store inside.
