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

Not a great option as a beach. It's just a thin strip of sand next to the road. Better to pay the $7 per person at the public beach. Much much nicer. Don't go here for the beach, despite the name. The park itself is...More

I loved the pond on the lake side of the park. Everything in that area was very well-maintained, and there were a few people fishing and picnicking. It was much less crowded than the park along the water in downtown Lake Geneva, but parking is...More
