Big Foot Beach State Park RV & Campground Guide
Big Foot Beach State Park sits on Lake Geneva's shorelines with 271 acres of mixed hardwood landscape, woodland birds, and level terrain. It was named after Chief Big Foot, an early Potawatomi leader who originally occupied the area. RVers travel to the park from all over for camping and lying on the 900 feet of sandy shoreline to soak up the sun. If you adventure away from the coastline to the hiking trails, you can observe the wildlife that considers this place home. Some wildlife that can be seen here are foxes, cottontail rabbits, coyotes, white-tail deer, and other small game animals. Cities near the state park are Lake Geneva, Burlington, and Delavan.
