My boyfriend and I stayed at Big Foot Beach State Park in July 2014 and were extremely disappointed. At the time they were building a new shower house so they had a trailer with showers instead- which is fine; however, the showers were very dirty and I felt I needed a shower AFTER taking one! I was expecting clean conditions... More

We decided to camp at the park for a Friday and Saturday night. We got to the park and went to our campsite. Our site was pretty decent sized, but most of them were quite small. The shower house was being built so there was a trailer showers in it. The side of the trailer said it was clean /... More

We stayed here in Aug. 2014. All of the typical state park rules and fee's were consistent. The campgrounds seems small, but it served it's purpose for us. We were hanging out outside of the campgrounds all weekend so we pretty much just slept there and hung by a fire in the evening. We had a pop-up and a 26ft... More

This was a very popular place for all the weekend warriors to hand out with their friends and families. Was a very nice and clean park. easy to get around but very crowded.

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.

lots of campers - not well policed or taken care of. situated at east end of Lake Geneva with a very small beach access to the Lake.

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
