Owner description: Get this straight: The city is Lake Geneva, the lake is Geneva Lake. Hop aboard a classic yacht for a cruise around the second deepest lake in Wisconsin (135 feet deep and 21 miles around) which is the focal point of a popular resort area also known as "the Newport of the West."

“Beautiful lake and pleasant town”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Lake Geneva is a resort town with a variety of local and national restaurants and shops. The lake is in a beautiful setting near the southeast border of Wisconsin so it attracts many families from Illinois. Unfortunately, most of the properties around the lake are privately owned, so getting access to or even a glimpse of the lake by car is tough. Fortunately, Elm Park is a small public park on the lake and close to the shops, restaurants and parking. Public restrooms are available in a building called "The Rivera" near the small public beach. The beach has an admission fee: young children are free, but adults cost $7.00/day.

“Clean beautiful lake!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We loved getting the kids on Waverunners and speed boat rentals for tubing. For your best experience we suggest going on a weekday to avoid the weekend crowds.

“Great location”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We were within walking distance of everything. Kids love walking to KFC Burger KIng and McDonalds. Many other restaurants and stores were just around the corner.

“Absolutely Charming! ”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

What a lovely little town! We had such a wonderful day on the mail tour around the lake, they gave us tons of history and the mail girls jumping on and off the boat was quite the show!!! The restaurants were great and the shops were lovely!
