Phenomenal, ink! Did you happen to make your way over to the marina at the state park? That's one of my favorite places. There's a bulkhead that you can walk on that goes out a good distance.
In the 3rd pic that used to be an entrance for the amusement park, all carnie style rides there. It got taken down like maybe 2 years ago. The whole strip there has a county fair feel (minus the animals) there. The state park part is real nice, me and the family years ago rented a cabin on the lake there. It was spartan but more than adiquite for a 4 day vacation. Mentor-on-the-Lake had a simmilar area.

I dont know if you were there at night, but back in the olden days60s & 70sI remember Geneva-on-the-Lake as a really wild scene. It was a crazy biker hangout, with the Hell's Angels and area teens swarming the main strip. I had a teacher from Geneva who told us she once witnessed a Hells Angel ordering a raw hamburger in a local diner (a fast food form of tartare!), stomping on it with his boot, and then forcing his "lady" friend to eat it! Judging from the pictures, the town seems to have calmed down a bit.
Oh yeah....on the drive to Geneva I was very surprised to see an official branch of the HELLS ANGELS alongside the road. It's a small place that could be a floral shop if you somehow didn't notice the huge commercial sign! Well, I stopped the car and got out to take a pic of the sign, figuring there were no cars in the lot, and after all, they planted flowers around the place and it looks really non-threatening.DO NOT DO THIS.The second I got out of the car a jeep full of extremely dangerous looking guys pulled into the lot blocking my car in. They were not at all happy about me taking a photograph of their place. I apologized several times while they seemed to be having a discussion about what to do next. Even though I'm from New Jersey, I couldn't help but find the situation to be very scary. Then after a seriously awkward minute or so, they drove off. Already my wife has used this event twice as ammunition to support her claim that I'm an idiot.
Went there with the wife last weekend. We actually found a really good restaurant, a diamond in the rough if you will. They specialize in fresh seafood, and the chef herself came out to our table to go over the specials with us. I had a delicious trout special and she had a lobster lasagna that most certainly did not skimp on the lobster.
