Geocache Description:

Welcome to Big Foot Beach State Park. This geocache has been hidden as a part of the Wisconsin Geocaching Association's State Park series. This geocache is hidden on the Nature Trail, just off of the Red Hiking Trail.



BIG FOOT BEACH STATE PARK

"Big Foot Beach State Park is one of the last natural treasures in southern Walworth County. Lake Geneva is known for its clear, clean water. The park has many trails and natural scenic areas for outdoor enthusiasts both young and old to enjoy. A 100-foot swimming area is about a 7 minute walk from the campground.

You can also have some fun by fishing in Ceylon Lagoon. Fish can be reeled in from the lagoon's pier, two bridges or bank. Fishing equipment is loaned free of charge at the office. Many enjoy canoeing or kayaking in the lagoon as well. The park's 6.5 miles of hiking trails wind through forest land and open meadows. Most trails are relatively short and range in difficulty. The trails are groomed in winter for cross country skiing by park staff.

The park provides a few other outdoors activities such as a sand volleyball court, playground, orienteering courses, and a self-guided nature trail with interpretive signs about interesting natural phenomena on the trail." --Friends of Big Foot Beach State Park

Big Foot Beach State Park requires a fee to get in and enjoy the park. It is $7 per day or $25 for an annual pass for Wisconsin residents. Please visit here for the current fee schedule: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/admission.html

The Wisconsin Geocaching Association (WGA) is a group of geocachers dedicated to promoting and protecting geocaching within the state of Wisconsin.

2013 kicks off the beginning of the Wisconsin Geocaching Association State Parks series. It is our goal to place a geocache in every state park in the state of Wisconsin so watch out for more in this series that encourages geocachers to explore the natural resources in this beautiful state of ours.

The Geocache Notification Form has been submitted to Anne Korman of the Wisconsin DNR. Geocaches placed on Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource managed lands require permission by means of a notification form. Please print out a paper copy of the notification form, fill in all required information, then submit it to the land manager. The DNR Notification form and land manager information can be obtained at: http://dnr.wi.gov/files/PDF/forms/2500/2500-118.pdf
