Take the Virtual Tour! - DARIEN LAKES STATE PARK

Darien Lakes State Park's hilly terrain features woodlands, ravines, streams, and twelve-acre Harlow Lake. The park's campsites are equipped with electricity, except for the 12 primitive sites. There are heated comfort stations and showers. Even more of a draw is the park's sandy beach. Playgrounds and picnic areas allow for outdoor family time, and everyone will enjoy crossing the rustic bridge over the lake channel to aptly named Picnic Island. Excellent fishing for largemouth black bass can be found here, as well as hiking and horseback riding trails. The park is just as much fun in winter, when multiple-use trails are open for hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling, and an outdoor ice skating rink.


Darien Lakes State Park is located in western Genesee County.


Biking, horseback riding, camping, fishing, hiking, hunting, picnicking, and wintertime snowmobiling and cross-country skiing, are among the many activities at the park.


The park offers a beach, a bridle path, picnic tables and pavilions, a playground, and campsites. The park allows rabies-certified pets in all its campsites, so bring Fido along!

Alerts and Important Information
Each year the campground makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice. The swimming area is scheduled to open the 3rd week of June. Please check back here or contact the park directly for further details.
