Lakes renowned for debauchery

Lakes, like college towns, can get a reputation for partying -- and we're not just talking loud tunes and brewskis. According to Thrillist.com, plenty of "debaucherous mayhem" is going on out there. We didn't know debaucherous was even a word.

If you'd like to join the wild crowd, Thrillist has thoughtfully compiled a list of America's 10 greatest party lakes. Our own Lake Tahoe makes the list, but it's -- thankfully -- in the middle of the pack. Texas and Missouri are at the top.

(Whatever body of water you party on, stay safe by wearing a life vest over that barely there bikini, OK?)

Here's the full list:
