Parks and Recreation

Walworth County is able to draw in people from all around the Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago areas to its beautiful lakes, beaches, trails, campgrounds, country clubs, golf courses, and historic downtown areas.  The iconic Lake Geneva resorts have been revered by Chicago-area executives since the 1870’s. The 1,300-acre Grand Geneva Resort and Spa is one of five AAA Four-Diamond rated resorts in Wisconsin, featuring 50,000 square feet of conference meeting space, two champioTheBrutenship golf courses, and an onsite executive airport.

Other popular attractions include the full-service Abbey Resort and marina on the shores of scenic Geneva Lake, and the prestigious Geneva National Golf Club with courses designed by golf legends Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, and Gary Player. Walworth County extends this level of hospitality beyond the Lake Geneva area throughout the county inviting all to have fun.

Each year there are thousands of events held in Walworth County which consistently sell out, drawing in revenue and establishing brands for local sponsors. Walworth County is a highly supportive community for local businesses and organizations in all of the crucial industries like agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, and tourism. Last year (2014) Walworth County benefited from the 6th highest direct tourist spending in Wisconsin only behind the counties with a major metropolitan area.
