18 Parks near North Java, New York

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

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

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

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
Aug 2016 - $36.00
We were in site 113 with 30 amp and no sewer for one night, and then moved to a FHU 50 amp pull through, #135 for the next three nights.
(Note: Site 135 50 amp, Site 113 30 amp. No breakers at either, direct plug in.)
The campground was extremely busy but it was still quiet & orderly.
The only reason it's not a 10 is because the entire place is in a valley and our wifi hotspot went from 4G to extended service to no service to 3G every few seconds. We were told the pull through sites were good for a roof mounted satellite dish, but the trees to the SW are too tall. (Ironically, site #113 has a small window through the trees and our DirecTV worked flawlessly there.)
There is a trout stream that lends great ambiance, and there is a swimming pond. No lifeguard. We would definitely stay here again even with the wifi and satellite issues. - therealSimpsons

This camp is about 5 miles from the Castile entrance to Letchworth State Park making it very convenient for visiting the State Park. It is also just 3-4 miles from the Portageville entrance/exit, which is the point where you exit the Park after visiting the three falls. We stayed in site 132, which was near the front of the campground. The positives: fairly large grassy sites that were fairly level. There is no cable hook up but with an antenna you are able to get excellent reception but only one of the major network stations. Bathrooms were very clean. My husband wished he had brought a fishing pole as the East Koy Stream ran through the property near our site and is stocked with trout. What I was displeased about is that I called a few days ahead to make a reservation. I was not given any instructions. We assumed we would be arriving about 6:00 PM but we got in about 6:30 PM. When we arrived the camp office had closed at 4:00 PM and there was no note to us telling us where to park for 50-amp service. They had two phone numbers taped to the door for after hour questions. Upon calling the first number I got voicemail. A man very hesitantly answered the second phone after several rings. He told us where the 50-amp sites were and told us to pick a site, which is what we did. Our AT&T service was about 1-2 bars and occasionally could not use my 4G service. There was WIFI available if you were willing to go up to the main office. The sewer cap was on so tight we had to call for assistance when we were ready to drain our tanks. All in all, it was a good site for the price and I would be willing to stay again. - Lucy's Friend

Very nice layout of sites and a picturesque stream running through the park. Nice and quiet with plenty of room for transient campers like us. First major drawback is no pool. There is a small swimming pond, fine for kids & wading. Second major drawback is very poor cell phone reception. - Joe & Penny

Stayed there as a seasonal many years ago but park was recently sold to a resort company. Rated almost doubled but they did add a pool and inflatable water slides for kids. Very nice setting but entrance and exits are winding through woods. Staff was ok but not as family oriented as previous owners. Would not go back. - Campdad

We stayed here 1 night in a tent. Although it was a bit rainy, we enjoyed our site by the stream. Site map showed a pool, there is no pool here. Was very quite and peaceful. Would definitely stay again - thehiker+1

The road to enter and exit the park is a long, narrow, bumpy, winding road cut through the woods. You'll need to take it very slow and easy. There was one particular curve on the way in that we barely made in our 40 foot rig. Once in the park, the roads are EXTREMELY dusty. However, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the campground itself is very nice. Sites are grassy and nice, but not too level, so a good amount of leveling will be necessary. Also, considering the grass sites and the dusty roads, I would think that it could get a bit messy if an extended rain were to occur. We might have considered staying there again if it weren't for the roads used to enter and exit the park. - mtrumpet

Colden Lakes is an "OK" campground. The sites are very plain and have water, electric, and sewer. There is not much else beyond that as for amenities at the sites. The section that we were in had the sites on top of each other with about a 10 foot strip of grass between the sites. The premium sites that actually faced water were already taken up by the full timers. Many of those sites actually had wood decks built and sheds. The different sections have security gates for vehicles. In order to access your area, you need to have an electronic access card. You are required to pay a $20 deposit for the access card. The $20 is refunded when you turn in the card, providing there is someone there to take the card. We had to give it to the maintenance guy who gave us $20 out of his pocket so we could get on the road. The road to the campground is absolutely horrible. There are extremely steep hills to climb and descend. The roads are also in horrible condition deteriorating with numerous pot holes. - Armyret99

This large campground has undergone some major improvements over the past couple of years. Although this park tends to cater more toward seasonals, there is a newer section to accommodate weekenders. However, the weekend sites tend to be very close together, so privacy at the sites is minimal. Also, the sites could use a little more grooming. We also noticed that many of the sites in the newer section are now also being rented out to more permanent, seasonal residents. This is reducing the amount of sites available to weekenders and travelers. The on-premises restaurant serves excellent food and offers live music on weekends. Swimming pool is great. Not much stock at the camp store. However, there is a large town (East Aurora) only about four miles away where you can get anything you might need. Overall, this is a nice campground. The reason that I gave it an (8) is because I felt the price is a little high for size of the sites. Nonetheless, we would stay there again. - mtrumpet

This park has updated to 50amp full hookup sites, big rig pull through sites recently. They are open from May-Oct. There's a restaurant on the grounds along with small store that stocks every Friday. There's a large play area for baseball or frisbies and a small playground for the children. Everything is very clean and updated. We will stay again when coming through the area. - jimdee

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

We were a bit skeptical about this place when no one returned my call until two days later, which was after our arrival. I looked on the web site to determine which site to set up on as you can look at availability and we then registered with the groundskeepers in the morning. Some sites (about 10 in the electric section) are good for larger rigs (we are 38 feet). We set up on site 8 and had plenty of room. We were able to get about 7 channels on the antenna. It was very quiet during our stay. It is out of the way but we found it convenient as we wanted to be between Buffalo and Ellicotville. I would NOT take a big rig to the non-electric sites (low branches; tent or pop-up sites only). For the electric bigger rig sites, I would suggest 6, 8, 9, 13, 16, 27, 29 to name a few. Not a lot for kids to do but there are tennis courts and lots of trails and nice playgrounds. No activities planned. There are a lot of trees and shade. Park is clean and mowed. - twins89

I found this park from this website when I was in a critical need of a place to stay. The staff was exceptional in accommodating my need. The campground is very nice an spacious and great for a town owned park. We would most definitely stay there again. - Zipster

This is a very nice county park. Electric sites are a bit close but the non-electric sites are very large. There really isn't a lot for young kids to do but enjoy the outdoors. Fishing the ponds was enjoyable but without much luck. This is a great park to go and just relax without much of a party atmosphere. - dulab47

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
