Big Foot Beach State Park is a 272 acre (1.1 km²) Wisconsin state park on Geneva Lake. The park is used primarily for swimming, camping, and fishing.

The beach and park are named for Chief Big Foot, an early Potawatomi leader in the area until forcibly relocated in 1836. Big Foot Lake was the original English name of Geneva Lake. ["Big Foot High School FAQ." http://www.bigfoot.k12.wi.us/about/faq/faq.htm]
