It was empty. Guess no one wants to swim when it's 40 degrees and windy. Looks nice though... read more

We visit this beach whenever we stay at the Abbey Resort in the summner. Wonderful, clean beach. Attentive lifeguards, shady areas for picnic lunches.

Beach was beautiful with a view of the bay toward downtown Lake Geneva on a clear day. The beach also had life guards on duty.

The sand at Fontana beach is course and stains your clothing. It is within walking distance of the Abbey, but I would not recommend wearing a light colored bathing suit or trunks.

Very nice beach on Lake Geneva: parking is a problem, but sand was plentiful and water was clean. We came with five children and they didn't even seem to notice the storm that rolled in and dropped cold rain on us all.

The beach was clean and big enough we didn't feel like we were on top of other people. Barely any seaweed. Bathrooms and changing area were nice as well. The water was cold, 72 degrees but I guess that is just water in Wisconsin!

Not crowded at all due to the fact it was February but the weather was in the 50's so we walked the beach.

We were, at one time, regular visitors, now we prefer other beaches around Lake Geneva. Over the past fifteen years the quality has declined.

I did not see any grills at the beach, but there are grills in the adjacent park, just a short distance away. I believe they open at 9am. You won't be disappointed.

It is sandy for a little ways and then rocks, mostly small pebble-ish. Nothing serious. I like Fontana but prefer Williams Bay. Also I have a parking sticker for all Wisconsin state parks, $38 from the Wisconsin Department... More
