Maybe the smallest beach I have ever seen as we drove right by it and almost hit folks on the beach, crazy setup they have at this road-side beach off the lake...

The location is great but the only issue is it is very small in size. One of the smallest state park I have ever visited. So it is obvious that in weekends it will be very crowdy and the privacy will be less. Park attendants were helpful and the park also has access to lake Geneva though very small beach.... More

I read pretty much negative reviews of this camp and also the weekend of the triathlon so I didn't have high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. We were in tent site #30 and were RIGHT by one of the driving paths. (this is a GREAT site if you want to cheer on the athletes as they run by). The host... More

So, you pull into a fenced-in park, go down the street to park, drag all your stuff to a very small, crowded on weekends "State Park" area overlooking a creek, the main street and the only free "beach" on Geneva Lake. The "beach" is pathetic. The width is about 6' by about 75 yards. Good luck.

The beach is VERY VERY tiny. Therefore, if its around noon, it's difficult to even find a spot to lay down a towel. The water is murky and there are insects all along the beach. There is a beautiful view of the lake, but that is the only pro of this place. My advice: skip it and go to another... More

Very nice beach that runs along the Lake Shore path. Comes in very handy, esp. having to use the restroom facilities!

We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, 4 nights total. First night loud group of teens and twenty something partied almost all night. The no alcohol rule or quiet time at 11 were enforced. Camp hosts ride along all day selling firewood but not when they are needed so people can get some sleep. Second and third night went... More

Sites should be a little more private add acouple of trees in between sites ..to add a little privacy. Shower stalls were tiny.. trails were nice ..the beach is an unsafe area for little children.. PUT UP A GAURD RAIL TO PROTECT FROM ANY ACCIDENTS THAT MAY OCCUR!!

Big Foot Beach usually has more availability than other state parks in WI. Maybe because they enforce the no alcohol policy. This park is fairly small, the the beach is even smaller and pretty public. Most of the camp sites have nice flat grassy spots for tents and they've added more electric sites. There is a temporary mobile shower trailer... More
