Our stay there was exceptionally good. The showers/bathroom facility was updated & very clean. They have a very nice playground area, fishing section, and the swimming area was clean. You do have to cross a very busy road to get tot he beach area & most things are located very far from the actual site area's, but it seems to... More

We did family camping at Big Foot Beach State park during July 4th weekend. Altogether we were 7 families. We had multiple camp sites reserved. Noticed that for some reason our site was lot more specious compared to other sites. Restrooms were impressive. Newly built in 2015 with 7 private showers (not stalls), something I have not seen at any... More

We stayed at site #62 . Sites here are very close together and you dont have a lot of privacy. This was our first visit and the address we got was on the website with a quick google searchand got the parks mailing address. The address you will want to put into your GPS is actually 1550 S.

We walked on a trail that wasn't kept up. It needed mowed to be able to see the trail and had large limbs lying across the trail in two places that we walked. Not real safe.

This review is based solely on the type of campers we are. We decided to go camping last minute and this particular site was available. Price was reasonable and the weather was gorgeous. The bathrooms were just redone in may of 2015 and were visually beautiful from the outside. The women's bathroom had 3 stalls and 2 of the 3... More

Located next to the Geneva Lake (separated only by Lake Shore Drive).. Man attraction here is Big Foot Lake with 2 bridges across.. (Entire Geneva Lake used to be called Big Foot for the Pottawatomie Chief). .

We stopped by not really knowing what to expect. We drove in and the park employee was helpful. We did not have time to do a lot of hiking or exploring, but the part we did see was nice. Seems like good, well marked trails.

Well, we visited this place in off-season. However the day was sunny and temperature above 32. The park is in the close vicinity of lake geneva. As per the park maps and guidelines its a popular place for camping and trekking. We visited the place with three other friends. We went for small 2.5 miles of nature trail hiking in... More

The Lake of Lake Geneva is truly beautiful but it is difficult to get a good view of it. The Big Foot Park is one of those rare places (and it is free) to have a spectacular view of the lake. Granted, there is a road between most of the park and lake but during our visit in December it... More

We stopped by here on labor day weekend to visit the Big foot beach. We thought the beach is inside the state park, actually it is located at the opposite side of park entrance and it was unbelievably crowded. But the state park has nice picnic spots, campgrounds & few trail paths. We took an easy trail and enjoyed the... More
