This isn't a typical campground. About 80-90% of the campers are permanent with porches and/or add-a-rooms. Sites are only rented on a weekly basis at $250/week with a full 30 amp hookup. Water, water pressure and electric were all very good. Very clean with lots of activities. Two in ground pools plus kiddie pools.
The permanent sites are leased and the community has elections and determines what the seasonal rates will be. Pretty unique in our experience. We stayed from a Friday until the following Wednesday. I believe this was the quietest site we've ever stayed at. And there were kids around. It is a gated park. No charge for guests, but they do need to sign in.
It's about 10 minutes from the outskirts of Buffalo with plenty of good restaurants and entertainment available.
We would definitely recommend checking out Leisurewood. - pitman44

This a good overnight stop park. Only have water and electric. They do have a dump station. The OTA TV channels were great, well over 20. Check in was good and we had a pull thru so it worked for us. Site was very level. - belanga

We got in on a Thursday, had a wooded spot in the back. Parked in our VERY NARROW spot right in front of our hookups and with the fire pit right at our front door on the side. We stayed for a week. We have a FOOT from the tree to the slide on either side of us.
On Friday two tents show up a foot from our slide. We go to the office and complain because not only that there are a bunch of noisy kids running around. Turns out between each RV site there are tent camping sites. The workamper in the office we RUDE about it. He said we were in THEIR spot?! We are in FRONT of our box..... with a TON of space between our box and theirs to the right. He (the work camper) said THEY don't mind that WE are in THEIR spot?!
Then he comes to our RV at 9pm at night trying to show us what he is talking about then blames the tight spot on the fact older RVs didn't have slides. He tries to say we parked crooked (we didn't), then says if we had an issue we should have said something when we pulled in. We didn't KNOW they allowed tents between RV spots. There is plenty of room between RV spots.
Then the lady at the front gate got rude with my husband because I took down the hang tag on our car, while we are out of the campground, I don't need people knowing where we are staying. It's a safety hazard.
Then since there are no sewer hook-ups we paid the $11 to have our tanks emptied. The guy pumps the black tanks and then lets the grey tanks empty ON THE GROUND. Gross! Regardless of state rules if I PAY you to dump both my tanks I don't expect one to go on the ground and now have to deal with the smell and mess in our campsite.
The bath house didn't have tile just the tile batting.

Do Not Use GPS To Get Here! Trust me use the directions from the Campground. This is a big campground. They are spread out with seasonal and transient sites that are level and hard ground we were not in a site per say but we were a group of 2 and wanted to be together. we only need 50 amp service for the one nights stay. We didn't have to unhook since we had a large area to just pull forward and turn around to get back on the road. The service is friendly and helpful. We found this CG from Passport but the discount is only good for M,T,W only no bother to me it was the area that we need to stay for our next leg in Ohio. The CG was very helpful. - Scooter & Crew

Darien Lake's campground exists in support of the theme park. Some areas are tight. You can find low hanging branches. There are few patio sites and only two non patio pull-throughs.
Great security, good water pressure and over-the-air TV. No WiFi.
Our site required blocks with the auto levelers to get settled.
The upper area by Apple Lake is quiet but you need a bike, cart or car to get down to the park unless you want a LONG walk. - wdw

We stayed twice this summer - alway a great value for your dollar. Both times we camped using a half price promo deal. Sites are nicely shaded, bathrooms do the job - but they really need to be tended to several times a day...and need a good scrub down daily....I don't think that happens. The staff are very friendly and the check in process is quick. I've already booked for next year! - User3551

I've stayed here in the past and had a wonderful experience. This past time I was not as impressed. They've changed the way you book the campsites. I used to be able to choose the sites, but this time it was by "tier" levels. I was really disappointed with the spot we were at. No trees. I felt it was quite a hike to the park even though it was a "top tier". One of the toilets in the bathroom was continually overflowing, and my daughter was quite upset when she used that bathroom and it overflowed. I suppose if I got to choose my spot I would not be as disappointed. Other than that, it is a nice spot to park and camp next to the amusement park. - User3551

We almost didn't stay here because previous reviewers said there was no big rig access, but there are definitely many big-rig sites, most are quite level, and we had no trouble with our 40-foot motorhome. Loop A is very shady; Loop B is open and we chose it to avoid tree branches. The on-line reservation system was quite accurate in it's choice of suitable sites. We were there before school vacation, so the park was empty during the week and nearly full on the weekend. Per the staff, when the nearby amusement park is open, the campground is packed. Water is available at many spigots, but you need to fill from the road before/after you camp. Very accessible double dump station. The park is truly lovely, and we would stay here again (off-season). - Mingo Papa

Love, love, love this campground. The staff was wonderful. Special thank you to staff and park ranger. Campground pristine, bathrooms spotless, grounds very well kept. - maxwell3816

Sites are a nice size, but most do lack any privacy. It will be a while before the newly planted trees mature to provide shade and privacy. The washrooms facilities are undersized, particularly if the park was full. Great park for families as there are trails, biking, swimming etc. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Very close to Darien Lakes amusement park. We stayed here as we wanted to visit the Williamsville area and this seemed to be the closest campground (we love state parks). Be aware that you will be "in the country" and there are no grocery stores or restaurants nearby. - Arvie07

Rate based upon week's stay. 90% seasonal. "F" and "G" streets is one area for over nighters. Spaces wide, but turn out to road is 90 degrees, so not ideal for big rigs. Large rv sales/service, seemed competent folks. Plenty of shade. Brand new utility in "F" and "G" area, which was nice. About 6 local TV stations. Did not like: 1) Pool closed post Labor Day when temps in 80s 2) Pay showers 3) Only 3 pull thru options that we could decipher 4) Very weak WiFi signal, but excellent near main bldgs, told they were working on it. Would stay again. - Hallock5

The park was nice, but like others have commented, the sites are very small and very close together. Most sites lacked grass, they were usually gravel or dirt. The sites that had grass were seasonal sites, and most likely planted or brought by the renters. The site had several pools, including a wading pool and a pretty good playground. My son enjoyed all of these. The camp store was pretty small, and didn't have too many supplies. Interaction with the staff was pleasant and most seemed happy to help. The big thing that I found annoying was all of the golf carts that people use to get around. Maybe it was because we were on a corner lot, but it seemed like people were always going somewhere. It was hard to enjoy the quiet and campfire when golf carts with head lights were constantly passing by. - penberth

Very nice seasonal campground with some short term sites, most of which are good for RVs of 32 feet or less. Very well kept. Two decent sized lifeguarded swimming pools with adult swim 5-6 pm daily. Nice activities building, and space for lawn games such as volleyball, rustic mini golf. Not much to do in the area, but that's OK since we were visiting family. We were fortunate to get site 38, an unrented seasonal site, that was more than large enough for our 40' rig with 4 slides, awning and toad. Some woodsy side screening. Excellent 50 amp, OK water pressure, good sewer, no cable TV but enough over-the-air TV. Verizon cell and air card worked great. No road noise. Quiet during the week, busy but reasonable on the weekends. - Phaetonman

Excellent small 4 site campground with a great soccer field for kids, nice hiking trail within a mile or 2. Fantastic walk along the Erie Canal to historic Lockport. Respectful and well maintained, I don't see it being this price for long. First come first serve basis. W+30amp only. - SilverBreeze
Aug 2013 - $10.00
Suggested donation is $10 for Elk members, $20 for non-Elk members. All four sites are level, cement pads with plenty of room that look onto large grassy soccer field. Each site has electric and all sites share one main, centrally located water spigot - you'll need a long water hose to reach. Dumping station 10 minutes away at the Lockport Waste Water Treatment Plant (716-433-1613). Just across the street from the Erie Canal which has a walking/biking path. Call the lodge for directions (take rte 78 north if coming from I-90), as your GPS will lead you to low clearance overpasses. Very nice people inside lodge - even has local information. Very quiet and in nice area. We'd definitely stay here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

First of all, PA members pay half of what I did. Second, online registration and web page design are very slick, implying a 'great' resort. Not so. It does have a swimming pond, putt putt. Playground for the kids and a small store, but they are old and tired. Hence I would grudgingly say it is a 'resort'. Roads in are washboard. Almost all seasonal to permanent sites. Transients are put into a field, which is OK. Honey wagon runs for free on MWF. Bathrooms are cinder block and I barely fit into a commode stall. The location really is good. Lake Ontario is 12 miles north, Lockport is a must, the Falls are 20 miles away, and Buffalo is 29 miles away. Services are within 5 miles, and there are several wineries within 5-8 miles. Service was helpful. Spent 3 nights here. Would do so again. - Mike from Bama

We called and made reservations. Did say we were a 36 foot 5th wheel and have Passport America. Passport America would have been $13.50 per night. Upon checking in we were told our 5th wheel was 4 feet to big and they could not accept Passport America. It went from $13.50 a night to $31.00 a night. Don't think we will stay again. No sewer hookups, $2.00 for electric hookup with a $2.00 charge for heat or air. Cable TV was just ok. Not worth it. - cbaker

The last review for 5/13 looks like they covered everything as far as what the park looks like with old trailers around the perimeter, but I also had site 43 in June and found it to be more then enough room for my slides and to get in and out of. It was also pretty level on wet grass, it also rained while I was there. I did not ask but it looks like the owners put RV's in sites 30-48 that don't have kids. The other section had lots of families with lots of kids. I think I'll send her a thank you for that! I would stay here again as long as I can get the same area away from all the kids. - twowoofs

With a name like this, our expectations were not too high, nor were they exceeded. The site was level enough, the power was okay, the wifi worked, the water was okay. I did not feel comfortable leaving anything outside or unlocked. A couple of long-term units with their accompanying piles of junk. A high price, but probably in line for the area. - Kvw613

Park is located behind motel. Fairly level, asphalt sites with reliable electricity and decent water pressure. Decent WiFi, but it did slow down significantly on the weekend when park was full. No pool or playground for little ones. Owners are extremely friendly and very, very helpful. Very convenient to shopping and Niagara Falls. - CWinLV

Poor directions to our side. Lady at front desk could have walk us to site but she did not. Communication problem. - Casy

There was a lot of standing water after it rained. Many potholes that became mud holes. There are only two washers and dryers for the entire campground and one of the washers was broken. Not enough showers for the number of campers. We did not get good directions to our site. Certain staff members were extremely helpful, but some others were not very knowledgeable, perhaps they were new (they meant well). No Wi-Fi at our site, but excellent Wi-Fi at the activity center. Cable TV reception was bad, no one could help me with that. The only good things were the activities for kids, the pool and the beach. Bathrooms/showers were cleaned daily, but with all the mud it did not stay clean for long. - shar1435
Sep 2014 - $38.00
Rate reflects a 1000 trails discount. Sites were level, gravel, and included a fire ring and picnic table. We had an open view of the lake and had a pull in spot. Only 3 to 4 RV's were in the pull in spots so we felt like we had the place to ourselves. Cable, power and sewer were great. Supposed to have free wifi but spent more time trying to connect than actually using it. Spaces were kind of close and we smoked out the neighbors with our fire..and we also got the same treatment. Close to Niagara falls, about 40 miles and no traffic on most of the roads. Would stay again. - tlrpilot

This park is now officially a KOA. It's a large, well-run campground with friendly staff, reasonably level gravel sites, and a small private lake. There are a fair number of friendly seasonal campers here, but lots of open and wooded spaces available for transients. Pull-throughs are long enough to keep towed/tow vehicles hitched, and sites are roomy and well-spaced. Bath houses are small, but there are several scattered throughout the park. Lots of scheduled activities for kids and adults. As mentioned by previous reviewers, there are lots of golf carts running around, but they didn't seem to be a problem. The park is not near the interstate highway, so if you are planning just a quick overnight stop, check the distance from your route before deciding to stay here. - DrLewie
