Gorgeous, spacious park. Quiet, good dark site for night sky viewing. Not all sites same size or level. Inspect sites before reserving. I used GM GPS and Waze from Cincinnati - both sent me on closed roads, back roads and impossible roads. Check route beforehand, and do not be afraid to use a real map to get here from wherever you are. Easy to get to if you use the right roads. - Bill Kelly

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

We have stayed at Sleepy Hollow Lake three or four times. There is a lot to do at the park, and they just installed a new pool, clubhouse, and workout facility. There is also a petting zoo, tennis courts (don't expect much there, but it's a good place to close the gate and let the dog run), mini golf, lake w/ fishing and a swimming hole, arcade games, foosball, etc., and many events, such as Bingo. It is a sprawling property, with some crowded sites near the front and all the action, some cabins near the lake, and RV and tent sites in the woods. We prefer the woods, where it has the feel of a state park. They do not have sewer, but there is a dump station, and you can pay a small fee to have a crew come out and dump your tanks into their mobile unit. It does get crowded on the weekends, so I would recommend reservations if you don't want to get stuck in the overflow. - The Farrells

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

The park has many improvement since we stayed here 5 years ago. It is well maintained and very picturesque. We stayed a month in the overnight area; most of the sites are seasonal. The owners are very friendly accommodating. I would recommend this park to anyone looking for a campground in the Buffalo area, even though it is remote. - jeanne gowan

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 is mostly full time campers. It is not really a campground but that is not how they advertise either. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. It was quiet and clean. You must pay for a whole week at the rate of 250. If you are staying for more than a few days it is worth it. - rcsauce

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

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 all made the best of a terrible campground. The pool was GREEN! You'd think with Memorial Day being a busy camping weekend the owner would have prepared for the pool opening but he didn't. So it was unusable the entire long weekend. This is the second year in a row the pool was unavailable apparently. He put about 25 campers in an extremely tight cul de sac with VERY tight sites. Their "beautiful dog park" is awful. Poop piles EVERYWHERE! Roads are extremely rough with large holes & ruts.I think with a little TLC this campground would be beautiful, but that's not the case here. I will never recommend it.
DO NOT pay attention to their website. It's all false advertising. The pictures on there aren't even CLOSE to what the place really looks like. - DASigrom 2018- 01_

Park was ok but the volunteers were not friendly at all. Bathrooms stayed filthy over the July 4th weekend. Wet floors , muddy and nasty. - Rv2001

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

Rough and rocky roads. Inconvenient dump station; no sewer at site. Bathrooms rust stained and smelled of sulphur. Pedestal voltage 102V-108V (surge suppressor shut off due to low voltage once with not that many people in the campground). Many member RVs permanently on site. Only one dumpster area for entire park near the front office. Property has potential but needs attention. - Bnbontheroad

We stayed here as a Coast to Coast member. I agree with most of what the previous review said from 5 years ago. I think they have improved some things. They now give you a map to your site, they have a security group that patrols the park and was helpful finding our site. Our site was number 44 and was fairly close to the entrance. Our site was fairly level and clean. The interior roads are poor and the road to the dump station is the worst of them all. We did not even go to the dump station because of the road condition. We stayed three nights including a weekend and except for the barking dogs during the day the park was fine. Seems like a lot of people leave their RV there and just come up for the weekend and have lots of fires and gatherings but it was quiet and very little road noise. We would stay here again. - RayN

We cannot recommend this park. We stayed here on Coast-to-Coast points, which made it cheap. The only virtue. Interior roads are dirt, rocks, and holes. Not maintained. In addition to the "RV" sites listed, there are several hundred seasonals. The term "Migrant Labor Camp" comes to mind. In the short term area there was not enough level ground to park my truck, much less the 35' trailer. The place was a sea of mud. We were given no map and there was no such thing as an escort. Sites appeared to be numbered at random. The dump station was a half mile from the entrance over BAD trails. Not happy??? You got it! - Little Black Dog

Family of 10 tent camped! We enjoyed the time hiking,fishing,catching baby toads,and salamanders ,wading in the creek! Camping is what you make it! Bathrooms are showing some wear, but are clean. Camp site mowed and clean. Park employees are friendly and helpful! Could supply fire wood but we brought our own! Great time until I realize I lost my husbands truck keys in the woods( I guess they fell out of my back pack while hiking) It's a good thing we weren't to far from home to get the extra set! We left a message at the shop in case they are found! Live and learn! - Conniemarie

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
