Far too cold and huge rollers coming in, the day we visited, but the sand beach was high quality for the great lakes, and it was clearly well maintained... EZ access to town and other sites, plus nice picnic/playground areas nearby.

A good place to experience the water. For a first time visit it really let you experience the vastness of the lake. I collected a bunch of shore rocks. It was very relaxing.

We were in Geneva on the Lake and saw this on this site. It was a great beach for finding interesting rocks but was so full of litter. We saw at least 5 tampon applicators and a bunch of other trash. This is our first...More

It wasn't too hard to find this beach. It has a sign that shows where to turn to. The dirt road was quite large and the parking lot was humongous! The beach was quite wide too. All driftwood was located on a mount of sand,...More

We went here on Easter and Mother's Day! Sat on the benches looking over the Lake watching the boaters sit seeing for a few hour's my daughter's families myself and husband we all had a great time!

Walnut Beach is a great place to visit. While there you can fish off of the breakwall, play on the playground, have a snack at the stand, look for beach glass, or listen to bands play on a summer Sunday evening.

Another disappointing year from Walnut Beach. Upon arrive the entire park looks delapitdated. The facilities are horrible. There's no real changing room, only bathrooms. Beach was full and water was warm. Wish they took better care of this beach.
