Thrillist posted their list of the best party lakes in America and you’d think with Michigan being home to more than 11,000 inland lakes and of course the Great Lakes, more than one would have made the list.

That’s neither here nor there. What’s the best party lake in Michigan according to Thrillist? Lake St. Clair.

And while we’ve had some killer times at a number of the other lakes in our beautiful state, we’re not disagreeing about Lake St. Claire. Here’s what they said:

Lake Saint Clair

Michigan
With an average depth of 11 feet, LSC is ripe for boat parties and home to Jobbie Nooner, a water-based Mardi Gras that happens twice a year and boasts its fair share of booze, toplessness, and massive crowds.
Drop Anchor: Big Muscamoot Bay (N 42.55783 and W -82.66071) is your move for an R-rated anchorage with floating parties. Also, an S.S. Pizza Boat delivery service. After a day on the bay you should breach for free music at Lake St. Clair Metropark and a host of other activities, including attempting to beat Lake Cumberland’s raft chain world record. Pro tip: buy the on-site Guinness judge a slice of floating pizza.

Lake St. Clair may be the best party lake in the state, but it’s got nothing on the Lake Superior Twitter page.
