Went with my dog which are allowed. Price is $11.00 for non-Wisconsin residents. $8.00 for residents. There are many trails to explore. Nice thing about the one I picked was that it was an actual trail-not paved. At my local state park the trails are...More

If you already have an annual pass for Wisconsin State Parks, then this is a great stop. There is a small beach right across the road from the entrance. Picnic tables and new flush toilets. A great break from the crush of downtown shops -...More

The beach is nothing to write home about and the trails are walks in the woods but I just got back from the new shower block and ran into a flock of wild turkeys. There is a two mile Lake Shore walk into Lake Geneva...More

This is a PAY AS YOU ENTER State Park (warning) and has decent parking, but not walkable from downtown. There is a beach, but is it razor thin and next to the moderately busy road. The beach is a sandbar - a term referring to...More

This is a very narrow strip of beach with way too many people. The road runs very close to the actual beach which is a bit unnerving. Hundreds of people set up tents to BBQ and picnic then cross the street to enjoy the beach....More
