You say all you really want when you go out on the water is a good party scene? We appreciate your honesty — and for you, we recommend Party Cove in the Lake of the Ozarks. Technically known as Anderson Hollow Cove, Party Cove is a spot near the Grand Glaize Bridge where boats gather, the music is plentiful and the beer is ever-flowing.
