  • It was a very cold and snow covered roads adventure. The lake was neat to see in these conditions, especially with a flock of ducks still swimming around. I'm sure this is a beautiful place to see in ...  more »

  • I had a nice short walk along the lake shore from Geneva and back again. I imagine it would be great with small kids as at the end there are a lot of picnic benches and a great looking play area. The ...  more »

  • You cannot beat the deal here! So many things to do for less than $10! Kids loved the spray park and the playground!! Large, spacious and fun! I enjoyed having a shaded area for us to put our stuff and eat lunch so close by. The biggest disappointment was the bathrooms/changing rooms. I'm not sure how often they clean them...but they should do it more than every two years. We'll be changing in the car next time. Overall, we loved it and will definitely be returning soon!
  • We attended a first day hike on New years. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the area
  • Willow trees line the edge of the lake within the park. We were happily surprised to see 6 snow geese here, having spent the whole summer here. There is a lovely park for children, including a water feature in summer.
  • We visited the Geneva area in mid-August and loved it. Was it perfect? No? I don't expect perfection. I do expect effort, and I saw workers early in the morning at the state park, cleaning bathrooms (and they were immaculate at that time. What happens when patrons soil the place afterwards cannot be blamed on the workers), manicuring lawns, emptying garbage cans, etc. This is a city/state park and it is well visited. Ever been to NYCs Central Park? There's trash, people, dirty bathrooms, etc. If you want perfection in life, you're going to be miserable. We enjoyed the lakefront, the concessions, the wine, the people, the pizza (and we're Long Islanders), even the Chinese food. Perhaps those who found so much fault with the area should opt to visit the Spam museum in Wisconsin, or some such place. We loved it. It is a gem.
  • Great park for a walk. Pretty small but offers great views. Seems to be pretty popular with the kite boarders and wind surfers. Cool spot.
