Lake Havasu is party city as far as lakes are concerned. Plenty of drinking and skin showing. It is large, however, so you can get away from it a little if you find a quiet cove. I've never seen this lake quiet but it's still an escape from the heat and also a good place for water activities as a group and not to mention, it's beautiful. Or, if you're social, boat up to a sandbar. The water always seems to be warm. You can camp right on the shoreline. Part of our group was on the shoreline by the little lighthouse while we stayed in the trailers.
