This campground is fairly quiet, located near Lake Geneva, making it a great place to stay if you plan on checking out the local shops and restaurants. The "beach" part of the park is a good distance from the camp sites, about 1 1/2 miles. The beach is also very small, and about 10 people can make it feel very crowded. The campsites themselves are nice, but in need of a little TLC. Our fire pit looked like it had seen its best days about 20 years ago and I am not sure I would want to actually cook anything on the grate. Other than that the trees were cleared back from the spots and most of the sites weren't too bad for leveling. There are some sites where leveling could be a challenge. We didn't have any trouble in our 24' motorhome, but larger trailers and motorhomes might have some trouble getting into a few of the sites as the roads are narrow and some of the sites are also fairly narrow. Only about half of the sites have electrical hook ups.The only water I saw was at the bathrooms or near the camp host sites. The center of the campground has a nice shower house that is clean and well kept. The water is on a timer so you have to keep pressing the button, but it is free to use, so no big deal there. We camped at Big Foot Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Definitely take a drive or bike ride into Lake Geneva. Boat tours of the lake, boat rentals, shops, and dining are available to put together a nice weekend of activities. There is a larger beach in the town as well. During the Fall, go to Harvest Time Orchard in Twin Lakes, WI (about 10 miles away) for great cider and fresh made donuts.

While the staff was friendly and showers and bathrooms were clean, the campground itself is very tight. We have a 27' TT and it was very tight navigating the turns. There was another fender bender when we were there, its very tight, while some of the lots are very deep they are very narrow and hard to back into. I did not see any water hook ups, our site did have electric but not all of them do. There were a lot of tent campers which this park I think is designed for. The playground is a pretty good walk but is very nice. There is a beach but I would be very leery about taking kids as it is right on a main road through town. We camped at Big Foot Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were SUPER frustrated with this place most of the time we were there. There ARE some good things about this place, so I'll start with those. Most of the sites are HUGE, like CRAZY huge which is great. Most of them are also heavily wooded which makes them nice and private, which is also good. Proximity to the beach is great, for the most part. It's a pretty solid hike from the campground to the beach. Took me about 15-20 minutes at a normal pace. So, that's about the extent of the good. On to the bad: The woman who checked us in was awful. One of these "all about barking out the rules, even though you didn't ask or have any intention of violating any of them" kind of people. ZERO personality. There was a guy there who was much nicer and seemed to be sympathetic to the treatment I was getting but seemed powerless to make corrections even though he was the one carrying the gun. :) The roads are paved but REALLY tight. I have a 35 foot RV and I'm REALLY glad we didn't tow the car this time. It was like a slalom course trying not to scrape trees on the road side (trade off for the nice wooded sites I know, but just say'n). I felt like I was trail blazing also with all the branches and limbs smacking my RV the whole way in and out. Only SOME sites have power, and are completely random as to which ones they are, so pay CLOSE attention when you book if you need that. The entire situation seems like its setup to discourage trailers/RVs (based on our experience and watching someone try to back in a 35 foot trailer - whew... I wanted to give that guy a beer when he finally got it parked, but alcohol isn't allowed in the park, so a thumbs-up sufficed). Although getting into many of the sites is REALLY hard, the sites themselves are HUGE. The showers are only open from 7am to 11pm which is frustrating, especially in the morning. So forget the early bird showers to beat the rush. Fire pits are rusted out and bent up but sufficient. That's all I got. We camped at Big Foot Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Staying in a Wisconsin state park is like ordering from an a-la-carte menu: there are so many choices and add-owns that registration takes concentration. The park has 100 sites, but only 15 or 20 have electric service. Water is available at the dump station but nowhere else in the park. Sites were often shallow and consisted of piled gravel for a pad. Our site was damp once we stepped off the gravel pad. The road through the park is very narrow and the trees are close; we do not think the park is suitable for large rigs. This is an urban park, surrounded by residential areas plus the local high school. We were disappointed by the excessive charges imposed on non-residents ($10 daily access fee, $2 extra charge for the site, $5 extra for electricity--$29 total for each night), but the location is very good for visiting Lake Geneva. During our stay there were hardly any other campers staying in the park, even over the weekend. When in the area again, we will probably grit our teeth and stay again. We camped at Big Foot Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

A few electrical sites. It could be a nice park but it needs a lot of work. Mow the weeds would be a good start We camped at Big Foot Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
