This is gator where they were talking about. Not very kid friendly place . Unless you see people with kids.
There’s a cove next to gator in the no wake zone a lot of sandy spots to beach and hang out.
The other spots I read in hear are on the other side of the narrows passed the virgin basin. There is spots to the left and right to hang out at. More private on that side of the lake.

We will be loaded down with 4 adults and 6 kids this weekend. Looking forward to hopefully meeting some of the other locals out here.

The last beach to the left right before middle point where it opens up to go to Echo or head to Temple Bar. Be sure to trim drive ALL THE WAY UP when beaching gets shallow fast my boat is 25', that's a lie exact measurement 24' 10".:D

Ok I’ll look for it this weekend. Even when the outboard is all the way up it still is scary for me.

Yes, it’s the back side of middle point, so as soon as you turn north around middle point island and pass that last rock outcrop it’s the long Sandy beach right there. Usually good on prevailing wind days, that rock peninsula protects from the winds out of the south

What makes Gator not kid friendly? Is it boobs, beer and shenanigans that go on or is it simply no other kids to play with? I'm asking out of curiosity as I don't have kids but can have quite the array of boobs at times. The last few outings we poked into Gator but spots were already taken and not knowing if full of kids or not from a distance so we ended up just inside of Battleship rock.

Labor Day was a beautiful day on the lake. We spent most of day inside of Battleship then Wishingwell to get out of the sun in the afternoon then ended up at Sandy for just before the sunset cruise back to Boulder Harbor. I was surprised at the number of boats at Sandy on Monday evening, even had a huge houseboat right at the tip. My season started late this year, I'm making sure to get out early next year!

Nudity for one, men and women, very clickish too, the same people that complain about reserving spots wouldn’t let you park there because it’s for one of their friends. And 19 different stereos going all at once. Add alcohol and then comes drama

gotcha, without knowing the boats already there i'm reluctant to just pull up nut to butt between two boats. I'd rather go find my own spot to not be bothered nor bother anyone else.

@3.Slow is a couple hours away. I think we will most likely be posted up in Swallow Bay and be doing ski and tube runs all day. Neighbor might also make it out. So that means 9 kids from age 3-15.

Should be an awesome day.

Just keep the hand out of it. I cut my thumb to the bone once right before a trip. A weekend exposed to the hot dry air healed it right up.

Might be out on Saturday. Taken my dad out for the first time. He has never been on a boat( let alone slow one with a big block). We grew up only on jet skis so he’s pretty excited!!

I have one of these installed. I plug it in when I get home and it keeps the batteries charged until the next time.
