Geneva Lake is a body of freshwater in southeastern Wisconsin in Walworth county. On its shores are the city of Lake Geneva, and the villages of Fontana-on-Geneva-Lake, and Williams Bay. Commonly known as the iceboat capital of the world, locals sailed the frozen lake 32 days in 2009.
Lakeshore attractions include Big Foot Beach State Park, Lake Geneva Yacht Club, Chuck's Tavern, Aurora University, George Williams campus, and the Yerkes Observatory. Owned by the University of Chicago and used only as a teaching observatory, the university planned to sell it to a developer. When controversy developed, the university suspended those plans and established a study group to plan regional center for science education at the observatory. The lake covers an area of approximately 8.14 square miles (21.17 square kilometers), has a maximum length of 7.5 miles (12 km), mean depth of 62.7 feet (19.1 m) and a maximum depth of 144 feet (44 m). Geologists believe that it is a filled-in kettle formed from a receding glacier.
