17 Parks near Darien Center, New York
Sep 2012 - $31.00
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

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

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

OK for our 2-night stay. E/W hookups were good but on the wrong side. Site #12 was long enough to unhitch and was level. Office staff was friendly and helpful. However...we felt that this once upscale park needs maintenance as it looks very shabby and on the hairy edge of falling apart. The petting zoo is in name only. The three dumpsters were overflowing with garbage and large bags were piled around each one and in the small pickup next to them...a sanitation problem for sure!!! Many permanents are workers who are adding construction debris. Got the feeling that management tolerates overnighters but panders to the regulars who are paying their bills. - loneranger

The sites are level and the electric and water are centrally located. There is no sewer but they do have a dump station. The Wi-Fi comes and goes and is not very reliable. This park is also a heavy day use park, quite crowded on the weekends. - Al and Anne-Marie

We only stayed overnight, but we certainly could have stayed longer. This is a very large gated campground with well over 200 RV sites plus cabins and tenting. They have scheduled activities mostly on Saturdays, fish fry and BINGO on Fridays. Owners are friendly and helpful. - Dick and Linda

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 was the only park we found within an hour of Buffalo that had full hookups. The drive to the park is beautiful! All shopping is 15 minutes away in Batavia. Does not have 50 amps and we needed an extension cord to reach the electrical box. Very soft gravel under the RV, but area in front of rig needed a lot more gravel as it was muddy when it rained. Verizon was very sketchy as you are really out in the country. We definitely needed our booster for internet. Lei-Ti is full of seasonal campers and has loads of activities for kids. But, we don't have kids. Security does patrol regularly and quiet hours were enforced. Our area was all dirt with a little gravel. Lots of trees for shade in our area (we were given a site that was originally for a seasonal rig), but noticed that the area close to the entrance for short term stay (maybe six sites) is out in the open. We stayed for two weeks. Staff was very accommodating, but not overly friendly. Would stay again. - mauigirl7254

This park specializes in seasonal guests, but we were OK with the overnight accommodations. We had a long open gravel pull through in front of the Lodge. Nothing fancy, but good in the rain and close to the wifi antenna. - camprats

Our first experience, here, was the very friendly staff. As the weekend went on they proved to be very nice and courteous. Shortly after we arrived at our sites. They were very un-level and had some low branches. There was also garbage still in our site, which shows that they do not inspect the sites in between campers. After backing in we noticed that in order to reach the 30 amp electric, without a 20 amp extension cord, we had to move so that our awning would be right over our fire ring (this one is partially my fault for not wanting to buy a 30 amp extension cord). That night there was constant traffic, from both vehicles and people. The 5 mph speed limit is not even remotely enforced. The next day we had a chance to look around. Some of the seasonals were very un-kept and cluttered. There were many activities to keep the kids busy. There are tennis courts, a lake to swim in, baseball field, peddle cars, mini-golf, etc. Overall this was an ok campground. Nothing fancy, but some of the nicest staff that we have encountered. - colts14760

Great location if you are visiting Buffalo or Rochester which are both about 50 miles away. Owners are extremely helpful and will take care of any requests promptly. In October when we stayed it was very quiet and close to lots of state parks also. - Tumblewood
Sep 2012 - $44.00
We loved this campground, the staff were great, some of the best we have met. The breakfast they serve on weekends is a great deal and way under priced. It may not be the best for younger children as there is not as much for them to do as in many other parks, but for my wife and I, it was perfect. We will be going back next year, I recommend the lakeside sites. - littleb

We stayed here because they accept Passport America and they are close to Letchworth State Park. We found the park to be fine and would stay there again. Because we were there during the week and the park is mostly seasonal, we felt like we were the only ones there, which was just fine. Spaces were either gravel or grass and were fairly flat. The park is about 4 miles out of Warsaw. Warsaw has a WalMart if needed. Wi-Fi is free but central location only. Cable is $5 extra. No sewer and no 50 amp (although others say they have 50 amp). - vidcity
Apr 2010 - $25.00
To call this a gem is a bit too much. We stayed here because they are open year around and in April there are almost no campgrounds open, so we stayed here. The "sites" are some grass areas behind the owners house. The sites are very close to the highway and there is a lot of highway noise. I would not recommend this CG unless you really need a place to stay when everything else is closed. It is fairly easy to get to off I-90. - TheJim

What a hidden jewel this is! Great for extended visits to the VA facility. Very tiny but a wonderful woman managing the park. Very old mobile home park with some vintage units in it but very quiet. A great park also for overnight. I do not think they are open year round. - Tamera
Aug 2007 - $25.00
This park was such a nice surprise. We found it by accident and will make a point of going back. It is located on the edge of town and shopping is within 5 miles. Very friendly woman handles the check-in! It is quiet because it is an actual mobile home park, most people gone during the day and quiet at night. Good stop for us "geezers"!! - Phoebe

stayed 3 nights in 43 motor home plus tow; located is very quiet rural area, about 15 miles to store; looks like a giant pasture, well kept and mowed. site grassy with gravel pad. Widely spaced nice sites with tables and fire rings. Offfice was not warm and fuzzy nor informative. Gated and a very large park. - ritag

Huge multi-loop park. The first loop is a large open area dotted with small maple trees overlooking the countryside. The other loops are down a hill in open areas surrounded by trees...no views of the countryside, but very open within the loop. There are other nooks where one could park an RV or tent. Lots of interconnected dirt roads and a few nature trails some of which border the Beaver Meadow Audubon Center- a several hundred acre nature preserve free to the public. Trees, ferns and other flora were exceptionally large and lush. Lots of wild animals. The night sky is amazing.
Bathrooms were functional. Cosmetically they looked old, but the showers and toilets worked fine. Water tasted odd, but could be due to minerals. The people at the office were friendly. The maintenance guy was very friendly and full of interesting stories.
Pool was clean and in a nice open sunny area. The lake is a large pond and fishing was so-so; lots of carp.
PA rate was honored everyday of week except Friday and Saturday. People at the office were chill and left you alone, even if you didn't show up for hours to pay for the next day.
I wouldn't just re-visit this park but would love to live there. The seasonals were friendly and participated in weekend activities, eg. Christmas in July. - mynyel

Rate was Passport America, good for 5 days which is great. Power was good, site level and grassy with gravel pad. Widely spaced nice sites with tables and fire rings. Office folks not warm and fuzzy or informative. Office opens at noon, so if you want to leave before then and have a gate pass turn it in the night before to get your deposit back. Laundry only has cold water, which they do not tell you. All in all a nice rural, quiet park which we would go back to if in the area. - Grumpier99

This is a fun, kid oriented park. The water park is pretty cool, and the beach is a legit SAND beach (been here 2 days, I must've made about 47 sand castles already). I have found the staff to be very friendly, helpful, and just downright chipper! This is a well-kept park and its quite popular in the summer. If it's not at 100% capacity it's only a couple sites shy. Lots and lots of cabins, lots of trees though some of the tent areas are in the open. We have a pull-through site (U4). This section is just adjacent to the water park, which is awesome because this place is hilly! Not all sites are but the top half of the park is all on a slope. It wasn't too bad getting level, but bigger rigs may have a some difficulty (my camper is 37'). The roads are gravel, as are the pads for your RV. The park does have golf cart rentals, which are popular, so book in advance. My rating of 8 (8.5 really) could have been a 9 if it weren't for the price of the site and visitors, and the hilly nature of the park. (The hills aren't AWFUL and didn't bother us as it gives some character to the park but others may find it difficult). So if you got kiddos and are looking for a fun kid friendly joint, this place works! - User3768

There are new owners this year. WiFi did not work except at the top of the hill near the store. Will avoid weekends in future due to overcrowding. This is obviously because park has so much to offer and nothing against staff or park--just a heads up because it is not relaxing and is hard to get in and out of sites on the weekend. Premium sites are obviously easier to maneuver. Top$$$. - jaycoman80

Loved it here! Friendly staff and well co-ordinated activities throughout our stay!! The water park was a hit with our kids too!! Hey Hey ride was a daily event for us! Our only negative comment is that it's a long drive for us!! We wish it wasn't such a long drive.. Next time we'll just have to stay a bit longer. - tzumatto
