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

I went with my husband and had a good time. The water is very clean and they have a shower outside to clean off the sand which is a plus. Downside is that you have to pay. Overall it was a good experience, better than Lake Michigan.

No parking, then paid $7.00 when we found a spot 4 blocks away. $21.00 to get in. You can't escape the lifeguard and mega phone..."no flotation devices past the orange buoys" "no diving off the pier" " no swimming under the pier" " no carrying anyone in the water past the orange buoys" "no balls pays the orange buoys" "no...

We had a great time at this clean, fun, and, safe beach on the pristine shore of Lake Geneva. Close to sandwich shops, ice cream, and bathrooms the beach and it's surroundings reminded me of upscale east coast outings. Parking was easy during the week at the many 5 hour meters. I bet the August weekends are crowded as I... More

Attended our friends wedding at the Riviera Beach Club. It was amazing. What a setting. I don't think I have ever been to a more beautiful location for a wedding. Even had fireworks over the Lake.

I think for an attraction like Lake Geneva they need to do a better job in making a better swimming area for families to bring the kids. The sand is dirty and littered with debris, they charge to get in for beach where you can only go abouyt 5-10 yards out. Not worth the money at all. Fontana beach on... More

We spent $24 to get in, I think it was reasonable for 5 ppl. Grandkids had fun and adults had a great view of natures finest. Another week or two and I'm sure it will be packed!! :)
