Lake Geneva is surrounded by vast swathes of unspoiled nature. Spend a day at the Big Foot Beach State Park where you can swim, fish, camp, hike, or kayak. Named after an early Potawatomi leader, Chief Big Foot, the park offers wooded campsites, showers, pit toilets, and picnic areas. If visiting in winter, why not try snowshoeing, skiing, or sledding in the park?
Williams Bay is another lakeside town with plenty of things to offer outdoor lovers. Visit the Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy in Willams Bay. This 231-acre nature preserve features a boardwalk, birdwatching tower, and trails available for those who like to hike and enjoy nature.
In nearby Fontana-on-Geneva Lake, you'll find Fontana Beach, a public beach that's ideal for sunbathing on while your kids let off steam on the sand. For yet more outdoor activities, take a walk along part of the 21-mile Geneva Lake Shore Path - you'll pass stunning lakeside homes, beautiful scenery, and abundant wildlife.
