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

I think this is the first Wisconsin State Park that I've found to be a complete disappointment. It's a small park, located basically right in town. While "Beach" is in the title, the beach across the street and doesn't even seem like it is part of the park. The campground is unimpressive. Sites in the RV section are right on... More

The state park has a lake/pond to fish in and its stocked. The cam ground is good, not to close to... More

BEAUTIFUL!! We went on our first snow-shoeing adventure here! We liked it so much, we bought snow shoes last week!! Not crowded at all; only ran into 3 people while out on the trails.

This is the worst beach I have ever seen. I hated paying good money to sit on a beach that was narrower than I am laying down. Lots of boats anchor here and it is noisy. The State Park is okay. We did camp there and had fun, but this park gets very crowded.
