These party coves in the U.S. are sure to put a smile on your face.

Party Cove, Lake of The Ozarks, MO

What used to be referred to as Anderson Hollow Cove in the Lake of the Ozarks is now well known as Party Cove. Out of all the places on the list, none of the party coves in the U.S. will be quite like this one. Did we mention that the Lake of the Ozarks just so happens to be the spot of one of the hottest high-performance boating events in the nation? The yearly Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, held at the end of August, has been called the “mother of aquatic top-speed events.” 

Big Island, Lake Minnetonka, MN

In the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Big Island on Lake Minnetonka is the spot to party. In 1906, Big Island was home to its own amusement park with a carousel, roller coaster, and a music pavilion. After some money problems, the amusement park closed down in 1911. Which made way for a private veteran’s camp to open years later. Years after that, Big Island was sold again and later named a public nature park. 

While the faces and names have come and gone, Big Island has never lost its spirit to the party. Every year on Independence Day, you’ll find no lack of boaters looking to have a good time at one of the awesome party coves in the U.S. Of course, no shortage of law enforcement doing their part to guarantee that happens in a law-abiding, safe manner.

Zephyr Cove, Lake Tahoe, NV

After showing plenty of love to our East Coast and Midwestern boaters, it’s time to head out west to see how the Left Coast parties. One particular party cove draws in the crowds on this side of the country: Zephyr Cove on Lake Tahoe. This social oasis has luxury resorts, beachside bars, sand volleyball and more. You may even find a waterside DJ booth. As summers come to an end on Lake Tahoe, the party doesn’t stop. Party crowds move from the water to the slopes.
