Some good some not so good. Weekday's are fairly normal with boats tied off to one another, a floating trailer park of sorts! But weekends should be left to the adults, when the weekend warriors come to unwind and the alcohol starts to flow, body parts may start to show.
Located on the Glaize arm of the Lake, from the main channel go under the bridges, follow the channel to the right, follow down till the channel curves left, swing wide to avoid shallow water buoy. Party Cove will be on your right in a long cove. It's State Park property along the shore so there are no homes or markers.
There are two public beaches in the area with a sandy roped off swim area. Public Beach #1 is located a few miles down Hwy 42, turn right onto Hwy 134 and follow signs to beach.
