Ten thousand people partied on Torch Lake over July 4th weekend this year. The sandbar on the lake has become one of northern Michigan's prime summer party destinations.
But many neighbors on the lake are upset about the trash, the trespassing and the noise.
State Representative Triston Cole (R-105th District) put together a roundtable on the issue last week, seeking a solution.
"This is a public body of water," Rep. Cole says, "and people have a right to have a great time and enjoy places like the sandbar on Torch Lake."
