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. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Arrived for our 2 day stay at site 96 (Saturday & Sunday). The power pole wasn't working. The picnic table in the middle of the RV parking site should have been a clue. Went back to the check-in station and asked to be moved. The head person said that because it was Saturday she couldn't move us, but she would send someone over from maintance to look at it. After 40 minutes no one showed, so we went back to the office to complain, but the office had closed. We ended up staying at a hotel. It looked like a few other sites may have had problems, i.e. the picnic table blocking the site. Be careful when picking your site because the registration office and maintance don't seem to be talking to each other. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

You pay for the convenience of being right at the amusement park; you can come and go all day long. Nightly rate quoted includes entrance for 4 people to the park. 75% of the units here are rentals; most renters aren't typical campers and don't always know camping etiquette. Wifi was spotty at best and our site had barely 20 amp service. We popped the breaker a few times. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The rate was with a Darien Lake season pass. This park is beside Darien Lake resort theme park and because of this fact I give it a rating of 5, otherwise it would be lower. The few small bathhouses are entirely inadequate for a campground this size. In the morning there were always people waiting to use a toilet at the Lady’s room. Cleaning of the bathrooms was also entirely inadequate for facilities this heavily used. The water and electric sites in the woods are very large but there are lots of trees so big rigs are problematic in many sites. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great park within the amusement park. So easy to go back and forth from fun to rest! Park is clean and sites are big. You can choose different locations with different features. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great experience would definitely be back again. People were great, the park was great too. Campgrounds are well maintained with many paved roads. The well water here is a bit skanky. I would bring your own potable water if possible. Fill the camper before you leave. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great value for the money. Stayed with 4 other families and had a fantastic time. Stay away from the wooded sites to the east; muddy hillside, we had to be moved. Great security, always around. All the staff were awesome and so friendly and helpful. Clean well tended grounds. Looking forward to going back ! We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

An excellent campground for the entire family. This was the second time we have been there and brought 2 other families with us this past time. Large sites that are easy to get in and out of. The camp store has everything needed (and then some) for a great camping experience. Friendly staff are everywhere offering information and help if desired. They have the camping experience down to a science. I will be back. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice campground at the park. We were able to get a season pass holders rate of $35.00 per night which included theme park tickets for 5 people. Excellent rate!! Downfall was that we took a tier 2 rate and the site was very unlevel and a bit of a walk to the park. Bathrooms needed a good cleaning. Campground's pool was taken out to make room for a roller coaster ride. With the campground pool gone campers have to walk through the amusement park to use the wave pool/water rides. A bit of a disappointment since we like to take a relaxing dip before bedtime. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Note that this is no longer a Six Flags Amusement Park. We stayed here during the Canadian Victoria Day long weekend just before Memorial Day. Campground is huge and it is clean overall. Nice campground to walk around. Biggest problem was the late night partying that went unchecked by Security - drunk people hooting and hollering well past 3:00 am. Thecampground staff were friendly but the park staff were rude and unhelpful. Watch out for their penny arcade games which I demonstrated to management were impossible to win. Park was opened on the Monday "especially for their Canadian guests" but they also hosted their annual high school science field trip day. The ride lineups were over two hours so we didn't bother staying beyond lunchtime. We would not likely come again except in the fall when the park is less busy. We were disappointed with this visit. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed here in our tent trailer at site 395 last week. I would agree with a previous posting that you don't go here for the "camping experience". However, it is a great spot to stay while visiting the park. Con's - sites can be close together and are often not level. Bring lots of leveling blocks or wood! No privacy between sites. No fire rings. Pro's - bathrooms and showers were clean. There seemed to be always a crew outside ready to clean. We were in the shady area which provided good shade. Close to the amusement park. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.

THIS IS A NICE CAMPGROUND BECAUSE YOU CAN HAVE TOTAL ACCESS TO THE PARK FROM THE CAMPGROUND. YOU CAN COME AND GO AS MANY TIMES AS NEEDED. THEY HAVE FIREWORKS AND LASER SHOWS ON THE WEEKENDS. THEY ALSO HAVE MUSIC ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHTS. IT IS A VERY AFFORDABLE TRIP FOR THE FAMILY. We camped at Darien Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
