“Enjoyed, but not loved.”
Reviewed October 8, 2007

I went to Darien Lake and stayed in the campground. It was a great and beautiful campground with very clean public bathrooms. It was cozy and nice to sit around on the site with your family. Some of the sites were actually very close together, and some were on hills, so I would suggest to be careful for which site you book. I would ask details. There were also rocks and dirt and sticks all over the ground, so it was a neccessity that we cleaned the area all up before we put our tents up, or else they would have gotten holes. I've done a lot of camping, and wasn't neccessarily happy with a lot of the sites. however, the camp ground was beautiful and regardless of some of the sites I saw, I was fairly lucky and enjoyed my time.

Also, the female public bathroom we used was clean, but threw the mirrors you could see someone showering through the cracks... needless to say... I didn't shower naked. hahaha

Also, a great place for dogs. They loved it.

But with the location and environment, I'd recommend the campground regardless, especially for a special time with your family.

  • Liked — The Amusement Park
  • Disliked — The site set ups (ie: rocks, hills, random trees in the middle etc.)

We visited Darien Lake and stayed at the RV camp on July 21-23rd. The weather was beautiful and our stay in the RV area was really good. We stayed in the Lakeside RV's which were the newest and best. They were very clean and came with a full size fridge, stove, oven and microwave. Also, there was a gas BBQ ready to go.
The Cirque de Soliel acrobat show was excellent, as was the Laser Light show at 10pm.
The waterpark area was good and also there were a number of other log/tube rides through the park.
Lots of coasters to give you a good scare too.
I would recommend staying in an RV, but beware that the older models are kind of set up funny (we saw a neighbors) and could be a bit awkward if you had more than 4 people, especially if it rained. Make sure you confirm a BBQ. It was good that on the day you leave, you can still use the park for the day. There is an IGA just up the road and appeared to be a liquor store next door. The park general store sells beer and some wine too. Prices were expensive, but not outrageously expensive.
