Looks like I get to tell you a little about the lake I live on,Tablerock lake in southwest Missouri. I also have to say I don't know much about any other lakes because I just can't see it being much better than this. I have been to LOTO several times and no doubt it's lots of fun. Party cove is one of a kind but its not a place I would pick just for everyday boating. We have a small place called the swing thats a party spot sometimes a couple hundred boat but not near as wild as LOTO, not saying thats good or bad just the way it is. I live about in the middle part of the lake there are about three different arms of the lake you can go from here each way is about a 20-25 mile ride so from my house you have 70-80 miles of water. The lakes deepest part is in the 200 ft range prob. average 70ft its usually clear enough to see 15-20 feet sometimes more. Thru the week it can be like glass if you like that and fairly rough on holidays and some weekends. Its near Branson Mo. so if you like country music this is your place, just not for me even though my family owns one of the biggest theaters there. Silver Dollar city is a big amusement park with a 1800s theme. Really lots of family stuff here and a great lake just not offshore type boating.Your prob. bored to death by now so I'll quit. Hope to see some of ya out in my front yard. I love the sound of BIG BLOCK twins..
