Does anyone know if there is a beach/sandbar etc. on LOTO?
I was there last June and didn't find one. Going again this June and hoping there is one somewhere on the Lake.

There is no place to beach at LOTO without gouging the bottom of your boat. Its all rock and gravel. When you get that close to shore you are risking your prop and drive at LOTO. Even with some small gravel on shore, there may be a big boulder under the water.

The only sand i know of is at Frankie and Louies and you cant get your boat there, but it is a fun place to hang out, and really calm water back there

When your boat touches ground we call that crashing at LOTO.

Boats don't belong on the beach anyway.

Don't want any sand on my bottom. If you think you see sand on LOTO - those are mirages caused by a little too much time at the local watering hole.

If you're looking for a place to beach the boat, forget it.
If you want a beach for the kids, try PB2.
There's one at Frankie and Louies, but be careul. The ducks might attack you there.
