Party Cove, located in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri is one of the wildest adventure spots in the United States.
From Memorial Day through Labor Day, every weekend is a party at Party Cove. If you are not hip on seeing scantily
clad men and women or wet and wild adventures, then you may want to avoid Party Cove during each weekend of the
summer season. Otherwise, the area is in a serene setting backed by the beauty of Lake of the Ozarks.
The water party spot is located in Osage Beach. You cannot get there with the help of maps, unless they are
homemade, but in the summer, you simply cannot miss finding this location. If you plan to boat to the Cove, you
will just need to head over to the Grand Glaize Bridge. As you approach, if you do not see the party going on,
then you will be able to hear it for sure.
From the bridge, you will be able to see hundreds (or thousands) of boats, heading at regulated speeds (just
because it can get so wild) to a pre-determined location on the Lake. At the present, this area is officially
known as Anderson Hollow Cove and it is located right off the shore from a Missouri state park.
Over the years, the location of Party Cove has moved around this man-made lake. This is mostly because real
estate development, a booming industry in Lake of the Ozarks, has made it hard for partygoers to party quite so
hardy in the backyard of these recent building developments. This has not slowed the celebration down. In fact,
in recent years it has grown to the point where water patrol projects numbers in the three thousands for July 4
Once visitors arrive at Party Cove, all of the boats are tied together, in a procession, to make one large,
floating, party house. There is no other party quite like the one at Party Cove. Things can get wild as alcohol
is distributed freely. Anything goes at Party Cove, and the excitement is enough to bring people from all over
the country to Party Cove for at least one weekend in the summer.
The history of Party Cove dates back to the 1960's and the party continues on today. Sometimes, the party gets
a little out of hand, as X-rated adventures occur. With this in mind, if you are into wild partying then you
simply cannot afford to miss a trip to this wonder of the ozarks. Just remember not to get too out of hand.
The mile long path that Party Cove stretches across can lead to trouble if you are not careful. Make sure, if
you drink, you have a designated driver of your boat. You will not want to be picked up for a BWI (boating while
intoxicated). Otherwise, just remember to be safe and have fun. Your adventure at Party Cove is ready to begin,
whenever you are ready to set sail and party!
