“Still needs work but improved.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Ride and facilities seem slightly better this year. Ride are usually in operation. There is still no security check of bags. The music played in the park is TERRIBLE. Everyone in the family (all ages) hates it. Alcohol consumption is uncontrolled .. you get loud, obnoxious and even violent people. A couple visits there were groups (15-20) of teens traveling throughout the park harassing people.

We had a great time. Would definitely recommend it to Canadians over the long weekend. It's very affordable. After having a leak in our trailer we were upgraded to a guest house! 4 bdrms well worth the extra $ as 3 families could comfortably stay. New 32 foot trailers are amazing but entry level trailers are clean and comfortable. All the staff is tgere to help you. They are super friendly and hardly any lines at all in the park. Overall a great and affordable family vacation.

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.
