We travel to several state parks every year and prefer them for their cleanliness and vast trails and nature. This park however is very small smack dab in the middle of a VERY busy city. The beach is across a highly traveled busy street. I...More

This beach was historically overrun with seaweed, crowded and too narrow. The seaweed has been removed and the beach was less crowded but it's still much too narrow for sunbathing and family fun.

In years past, I would have rated this state park below average. It's quite small, so if you are looking to hike or bike in the park, you won't find much. But if you want to camp right in Lake Geneva, this park has a...More

There is only about 6.5 miles of hiking paths and some of them run together, but they are well marked and easy to walk. Great scenery along the way. I didn't camp, but the campsites looked amazing. They were actual designated spots with little gravel...More

It's inexpensive and some of the sites are secluded. There are trails, fishing, volleyball and horseshoes - they'll even lend you the equipment. You're too far from town to walk and there is NO alcohol although we didn't have any problems. Just drink out of...More
