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

Convenient to Darien Lake Amusement park and really not far to Buffalo or Niagara Falls. Busy park, most likely due to the proximity of the amusement park. We stayed here because it's less expensive than the campground associated with the amusement park, and from other reports, quieter--especially if there is a concert at the park. Dump station is a bit tricky with where it's located when you go to pull out from it if you have a long rig. (see comments below). A loop looked very nice, but when I booked our site, there weren't any available that could take our 40 ft rig. A loop is fine, but more open sites that have very little shade, depending on where you are in the loop. We would stay here again if visiting the amusement park. - LibraryMom

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

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 we checked in we were told to pull into one of 5 sites (across from the over flowing dumpsters). We were suppose to have a pull through with full hookups. Did NOT happen! Thank goodness there were few campers as we had to pull in to our back in in order to reach water and electricity. Site was not level. Fire ring was just a charred place in the ground. Probably, because of the overflowing dumpsters the flies were abundant. Very happy it was a quick overnight. - Skipp

Some of the staff, knowledgeable, most not so much. Lots of young folks working in the office that are not familiar with anything happening around the park. Non seasonal area not laid out very well at all. Some sites had to pull into (back in site) unless you have longer utility to run under the camper, no sewer, utilities placed very willy nilly all over the place. Funny thing, had one friendly neighbor tell her husband (my windows were open) that he better march up to my camper, knock on the door and tell me to unhook my electric from her site (glad he had his head on straight as no one likes a bossy WRONG neighbor.) Fire pits (burnt spots in the grass) all over the place with folks burning anything and everything (seen one fella burning broken up pallets, nails and all.) Gated with security cards. Many seasonals did not adhere to speed limit. Watched one of the maintenance-security guys do a Dukes of Hazard donut in the grass (in a car) to run off some folks that were walking on the beach (plowed sand) area after closing time (2 hours of light left.) Very good reason to break the speed barrier. I probably would not return to this park unless they tighten up a bit (a lot). Could be a decent park otherwise. - On the way

We stayed for two weeks, planned; had a pull through site with water and electric. No sewer hookups; a dump station by the restroom. Also a "pump-out" service offered for $12. which we purchased. Later, found our pump handle to be broken off. The showers were fairly primitive; inconsistent water temperature. The sites are laid out haphazardly and not well defined on a large grassy/dirt area which was quite messy in the rain. Staff gave the impression of being bothered by the guests. During an evening walk, out of the campground and entering the neighborhood street, my husband was ordered back onto campground and told he was not allowed "out" and to return to his campsite. The campground had three trash dumpsters but were overflowing constantly. - pamMJR

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

Front desk was very friendly and helpful. We got here late in the afternoon so we didn't use any of the facilities. The pull thru gravel site was in front of the lodge and was level. New power poles have good plugs, the best I have seen in any park we have stayed in on this 6,000 mile trip. Water pressure is adequate, the park uses well water and it tastes pretty good.
The park does have seasonal residents but I don't think you will find a park that doesn't in this part of the country.
Lots of activities for the kids and adults. We would stay here again. - Mooney 201 Pilot

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

Park seems to be for seasonal mostly. It is in need of major repairs and face lift. - ultimatetoyman

Starting off the good: Located in a beautiful area. You do have to pull up a rather large hill to get to the campsite but no much traffic to contend with. The staff was nice and helpful. The pond is a spring fed stocked pond with lots of fish. We had some nice bass on the line. The not so good: The weekend we went the park was jammed full. The sites are not large and some of the ones by the pond are pretty hard to get into. You feel like you are on top of your neighbors. There are lots of seasonal campers, while most are nice there tends to be pretty large parties at night and lots of golf carts. Overall: I would avoid during the peak season and probably come back in the fall. - RSposato

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

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

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

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

This is a well manicured park that makes a good stop over. There is very little to do in this rural area. There is a single bar & grill and a single pump gas station less than 2 miles from the park. The park is very family-oriented with playground and pool. Clean laundry. Security gate. Pleasant staff. Site was gravel and mostly level. Gravel interior roads easy to navigate. Big Rig friendly. Some road noise from highway bordering park. Minimal shade. Picnic table and fire ring. The rate above is Passport America. - SunStar203

This was out first time here and it was very pleasant. The sites are wide and to be honest probably among the wider ones we've encountered in campgrounds. Office staff was friendly and helpful. The roads are very narrow which made backing our 41 foot class A into it's spot challenging considering there were sites bordering the other side of the road. It was impossible to back into our spot without driving on the site across the road. Our Verizon smartphones had slow data connections at times. - CaSm1993

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
