The village of Fontana-on-Geneva-Lake is a beautiful and serene destination to enjoy a small-town atmosphere with all the benefits of a waterfront destination.

Our scenic home sits on the western shore of Geneva Lake in Walworth County, Wisconsin, greeting residents and visitors with boutique shopping, hometown eateries, and outdoor recreation experiences.

Our rare combination of lively, local events, community parks, and quality businesses is truly what makes Fontana an ideal place to live and visit!

The Village of Fontana Beach is located off Fontana Boulevard.

The Village of Fontana has seen an influx of local COVID-19 cases.  As a result of this, the Village of Fontana Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision to close the Fontana Municipal Beach to non-residents.  Village of Fontana residents and season pass holders will continue to be permitted to utilize the beach.  These changes are being made to promote the safety of our residents and our staff.  We will continue to monitor the situation, and when conditions allow, the Fontana Municipal Beach will reopen under normal operations.  We thank you for your patience and understanding!
