It's decent, the beach is clean and there are lifeguards. It's free after 5pm to get in (at which point I believe there are no longer lifeguards on duty, can't remember). If the weather is good it gets super overcrowded though.

Townspeople of Lake Geneva use this beach all summer long. There is an admission fee and the beach is crowded with both sand and grass. There is a life guard. Water is not warm until mid August but it is very popular.
