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!! :)

Nice clean beach area with a wonderful location but very crowded. Get there very early to get a good spot or otherwise you may not get a spot.

Geneva Lake is beautiful, no doubt. But the beach here is small, crowded, and totally not worth paying $7.00 per adult! There was a lifeguard, and it appeared well kept, but all my husband and I wanted to do was take some pictures, put our feet in the water, and walk on the shoreline. Not worth $14 plus the price...

Beach area too small and crowded. Of course everyone wanted to take advantage of the nice weather. Who wouldn't. But there is a charge for the beach. It was $20 for our family of 4. So for the crowd it was not worth it. Also public restrooms close at 4:30.

Obviously we couldn't swim but it looked like a nice place to take a romantic walk in the summer. Next time we're visiting I'm going to try to book a warmer month to take advantage of the lake

The beach is located within the town and there is a charge for use up to Labour Day. The beach is small, clean and safe. Close in water is shallow. Not sure if there is a lifeguard, umbrellas, or chairs.

Lake Geneva is geared more toward boating activities, not hanging on the beach, so the local stretches of sand are not the main destination for most tourists. I'm a midwesterner transplanted to the East Coast, so it took a while to adjust to the smallish-ness of Riviera Beach. Having said that, it's a nice little in town beach, with a... More

The beach was nice. It cost $7.00 per adult to get in. Take a cooler and umbrella or tent and stay the day.

My little grandchildren had a great time at the beach. The food vendor was not very far, so my daughter went to buy lunch, and we had a nice picnic at the beach.
