Lake Geneva is a small well-off town. Tourist trap. So they'll nickle-and-dime you to death. Parking and traffic is a nightmare. You have to pay for it. $1 an hour and you can pay at machines on the sidewalks. Cash and credit is accepted. It's $7 for adults and $4 for kids 7-12. Which is ridiculous but it is a... More

Our favorite beach. There's a fee to enter. Not big, totally affordable. Great water, clean bathrooms. Could use more toilet stalls and less shower stalls. Maybe more outdoor rinse stations instead. Don't bring glass- we forgot we had Starbucks bottles in the cooler and they were confiscated. Unfortunately by the time you leave at the end of the day they... More

Riviera beach is only beach in the main area of Lake Geneva and it has admission fees for above 6 year olds. As we paid $7 for adults. I had high expectations. Beach was clean as they don't allow glass, alcohol, smoking etc. but water was not so clean as I expected. But it was fun. If you have glass... More

The beach is in a key location of Lake Geneva. We like to hang at this beach/park area. walking distance for food, coffees, summer goodies. Great location just to watch the boaters. Fall time is wonderful too. There were swimmers up until the first week of October. Its hard to say good bye to summer when your up at this... More

Now in it's Autumn phase, the colors around Lake Geneva are showing themselves. Still plenty of tourists taking advantage of the boat tours around the Lake. Oktoberfest has produced some of these tourists. A beautiful Beach, Riviera, more welcoming, to be sure, when the Summer Sun and much warmer temps are being enjoyed, but still, a lovely Beach.

What a Great facility! We had about 170 people in this historical 1902 ballroom.... plenty of room. Beautiful location on the lake...has been updated and everyone raved about the facility. Catering was top notch. Band and acoustics were good. It was walking distance to several hotels and near nite life after reception was over at midnight.

I love beaches and have been on quite a few in my long life. We live about two blocks from the Lake Geneva beach, so probably we aren't the best critics. It is crowded on the weekends (they say the city's population goes from 7500 to about 15000), but we usually go during the week and often late in the... More

I am a long time fan as I grew up on/in this lake. It;s now time in my life to bring the grand-kids here to enjoy what I took for granted for so many years as a kid. Yes times have changed and municipalities need to find sources of income so I was surprised when we had to pay to... More
