Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
Geneva Lake is a body of freshwater in Walworth County in southeastern Wisconsin. On its shores are the city of Lake Geneva, and the villages of Fontana-on-Geneva-Lake, and Williams Bay. The lake is known as the only place in the world where mail jumping is practiced, an unusual mail delivery system maintained as a local tradition.

The lake covers an area of approximately 5,401 acres (8.439 sq mi; 21.86 km2), has a maximum length of 7.5 miles (12.1 km), mean depth of 61 feet (19 m) and a maximum depth of 135 feet (41 m). Geologists believe that it is a filled-in kettle formed from a receding glacier.
