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 here 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 here in a Motorhome.
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 here 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 here in a Travel Trailer.
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 here 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 here 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 here 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 here 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 here 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 here 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 here 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 here in a Fifth Wheel.
Enjoyed this campground very much. Not only can you enjoy a full Theme Park of roller coasters and water park rides, but it also has arcades and even shows such as laserlights and fireworks. I would stay in the back more if you like it quiet and up front more if you like the night life. The walk to the back is long, but i enjoyed the exercise. I could not do more to improve on it. Clean sites and full hookups. We camped here in a Truck Camper.

You aren't going to be backing into a Darien Lake Camp site thinking "Wow, what a great camp site!" We spent the night there because the park has a Halloween theme going on, and we thought the kids would enjoy it. We got a shaded site, which also means no grass. the bathrooms were pretty bad as well. On the positive side, the kids had a great time at the park, which was the main reason we went. If you're going camping at Darien Lake thinking you're going to get a great camping experience, you're going to be disappointed. The sites aren't great, the bathrooms are gross, and there can be parties going on late into the night (they do have a family section though, where we camped). If you go there just as a place to lay your head so you can go to the park for more than one day, it'll work though. On a side note, one thing that bothered us is that when we registered online to camp there, you have no say in what camp site you get! they randomly pick one for you when you get there. Next time we go there, we're thinking we're better off renting a camper that's already on site. the rental sites are much nicer, and with us being 3+ hours away, the cost of gas makes this a much more affordable idea. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We live about 2 hours away from Six Flags Darien Lake. We've visited the theme park many times. This was our first time camping there. Our campgrround nightly rate was actually $125 for 4 people. This includes admission to the theme park for the duration of your stay. We find the Darien Lake personnel to be friendly and helpful. At one point, our 10 year old daughter slipped and skinned her knee fairly badly on the gravel. We didn't have bandages large enough to cover the wound. We called the first aid number and asked for a ride for her to the first aid station. An EMT showed up at our site within 3 to 4 minutes and had her cleaned and bandaged right at the site. Our site was not particularly clean. Used nylon ties, cigarette butts, beer bottle caps and small pieces of broken glass littered the site. We didn't find the glass until after set-up. The kids were put on clean-up detail. We left the site better than we found it. We got little sleep during the night. The site just behind us had a group of partying 25ish tenters. The party lasted the night. This was not the only party underway at the campground. We could hear others in the distance. Park management didn't seem to do anything to enforce quiet hours. We will not rate a park very highly at all if we can't get the sleep we need. We would rate the park higher if they would enforce quiet hours. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
My family camps here every year. Once in June before the season opens and in August when the season is at it's close. The kids bring their friends and the entire group has a great weekend. We usually camp in the back of the park and it's quiet and we don't have a lot of campers around us. It is a bit to walk to the park but it's quiet and the lights and noise from the park is not as loud. This is our third year at Darien Lake and we will continue to visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This CG is located within the theme park and is HUGE (1200 sites). The pluses: part of fun
theme park, clean bathhouses, shady sites, huge pool, well-stocked store, family restaurant. The minuses outweigh the positives unfortunately: Sites in much of the CG are bare dirt and rocky, hookups can be yards away- bring long extension cords and hoses, no firepits- find some stones and make your own, trash left on our site from previous occupant. Very loud at night - there is a concert ampitheater also at the park and after the concerts are done, the people come back to their sites and PARTY! No enforcement at all of quiet hours, we didn't get to sleep til after 2 am. The price you pay is usually part of a package for the theme park and the CG, it is part of a big corporation (Six Flags) so this is NOT a homey type CG. However, the kids in the group loved being so close to the theme park. Next time I'd stay at the state park nearby! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our third visit to this park. Always nice. Good Verizon coverage, mostly shaded sites, well policed. Large open areas and ponds in the day use area. About 30 minutes to Buffalo and 45 minutes to Niagara Falls. Price paid reflects $5 extra for non-NY state residents. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a great place to camp. It's got a wonderful pond to fish and swim in, Sites are large. There was power at each site, and it was shared water. The staff kept things under control because of nearby concert runover with younger adults staying in tents. Only two tents allowed per site, their site had 3, and in the middle of a thundershower, they were asked to remove one of the tents. For the price it can't be beat, and we will definitely go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was very clean and well maintained. Great beach to sit around and tan or take a dip in the water. Fishing was available and a picnic area to. There was always staff present keeping watch around the park. I will be going back again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Darien Lake State Park is a beautiful park. I feel that the site sizes were very roomy and open. Their bathrooms were for the most part clean, however, we were camping there on a concert weekend. Some rowdy behavior was present, but I feel that the campground security was on top of it. The only problem we had with this campground is that we were never told that there was no water hookup, and we came empty because we thought there was hookup. Employees were very helpful and courteous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I thought it was a very nice campground, even though this was my first camping experience. The sites very almost level with gravel. We had lots of space between us. If you have dogs, go to area A, 080. There is plenty of room to play with your dogs there. As far as water goes, if you bring 100 ft of hose, you should be able to reach one of the many water spigots. We would go back here to camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a really great campground. All of the sites are really nice. I've stayed here many times over the years, a great alternative to camping at Darien Lake's park where the prices are really high. The only downside I can think of is that the front office closes kind of early (had to be there by 8:45). We camped here in a Tent.
Decent, average state park. Sites were actually quite large in B circle. Most were grass and had shade. There were 2 bathrooms in our circle, which probably wouldn't feel like enough on a weekend (a total of 3 showers). There are no water hookups but dump stations are easy to get to and water spigots are everywhere. Camp staff was very helpful at check-in and incredibly friendly. They even volunteered other open sites in case we wanted to switch, which was very nice. Our campsite was a little dirty, with lots of beer bottle caps and scraps of paper. This campground is only 3 miles from Darien Lake Amusement park, great if you want a day getaway but bad if you camp during a concert weekend. On the campsite next to us they had 4 cars and 9 people and 3 tents and were playing loud hard rock music all day and then came back loudly after 1 am, as did many others. We'd stay here again, but during the week and not during a concert. There is a large 12 acre lake with a nice sandy beach, and some trails. Bathrooms were decent and more modern than some I've seen although they didn't have a garbage can even in the bathroom (carry in-carry out park gone too far?). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
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. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Skyline Camping Resort has so much to offer. Wonderful playground, RV store, pools, and recreational facilities for the family. The only problem we had with this campground is that the sites were very small, and no grass was on most of the sites. All gravel sites make a very uncomfortable stay. We couldn't wait to leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Exceptionally courteous staff. Maneuvering big rig was somewhat hampered by trees and road signs. Site was spacious and shaded by mature trees. We will certainly use this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground near Six Flags Darien Lake theme park. Everything was neat and clean.
The pools looked lovely, though we didn't make use of them. There is a nice playground available and the kids enjoyed the mini-golf (small fee). The sites were reasonably accessable to us in a 32' fifth wheel. Of the two staff members that we encountered, one was extremely welcoming, the other less so. There are a lot of seasonals at this park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
