Big Foot Beach State Park

This 272-acre state park is located on Lake Geneva, a large, deep lake with clean, clear water that draws good species of birds. In the spring and fall, the lake is a good place to see numerous species of migrating ducks including Lesser Scaup, Common Goldeneye, Common Merganser and the occasional Horned or Eared Grebe. The park has more than 5 miles of hiking trails through forest and open meadow. The oak woods found here is habitat for Great-crested Flycatcher, Northern Flicker, Hermit Thrush and American Robin. The park offers 100 campsites, a swimming area, sandy beach, picnic areas and good fishing on the lake or from the park piers.

Directions: Located 2 miles south of Lake Geneva via Hwy 120, at 1550 S. Lake Shore Dr.
