Located on the western shore of Geneva Lake in Walworth County, with a year-round population of 1,674 residents, Fontana offers the peace and serenity of a small town with easy access from the Milwaukee, Chicago, and Rockford areas.
We are a weekend destination for another 3,500 to 5,000 property owners and guests at any given time throughout the year.
Our quaint waterfront village has a rich history beginning with a way of life established by the indigenous Big Foot band of Potawatomi Indians and carried through with the incorporation of early settlement.
By welcoming wealthy Chicago families, clubs/estates, and community development projects, our beloved Village has grown steadily over time, becoming an ideal place to live, work, and play.
Our rare combination of local events, community parks, and quality businesses makes Fontana-on-Geneva-Lake truly special!
