    Lake George, New York

    In upstate New York lies one of the most incredible lakes I've ever visited: Lake George. It hosts some of the clearest cleanest water I've ever swam or kayaked in. Fish abound. Visibility into its depths is consistently 20 feet or more. There are tons of boats on Lake George...

    I Am A Lake Person

    Unfortunately I live by a beach. I'm totally not a beach person, never was. Sure if theres a nice long beach to walk on and look for shells or just enjoy looking at the ocean, I enjoy that. I don't have that around me, just a very small beach, if it can be called that. I am more...

    I just got back from visiting the lake.

    I had the best time!! We went cannoning and flipped a few times, we went water skiing and all the lake activities. We explored the forests and had fun!! If I didn't message you back the last couple days, that's because I was busy and had no service.

    I Haven't Been to Many ...

    I haven't been to many lakes.  The one I remember visiting most often was Lake Erie.  Lake Erie is polluted and cold.  The beaches surrounding it aren't natural beaches so they always feel gritty and nasty.  The place is just downright foul and I think that...

    Serenity. That is what I think of when I see a lake. On a calm day, when the wind isn't blowing, and the water is so still. Sitting under the shade of a willow tree, feeling a slight breeze caress my skin, while looking out across the still water. It is so quiet that you can...

    I Really Enjoy Lakes

    I hope to live on a lake someday.  Nice and quite, neighbors kinda far away.  A dock and a small sailboat.  Skinny dipping at night.  Sand or grass beach with shade trees.  Lounge chairs to read in in the day, maybe a hammock.  Picnic table.  Hot days for swimming.  Cool...

    Amazing Summers

    There's a lake in the country I'm from, called Issyk Kul. I go there with my family, or friend, every single summer. The meaning of Issyk Kul is hot lake. It got its name, because the water is really cool in the summer, and doesn't freeze in the winter. Refreshing!

    A Wonderful Start

    Deep gray so smooth it looks solid. The sun peeking over the mountain, scaring away the dark. The calm, the peace, the quiet only broken by the voices of the birds chirping, singing away the stress. The gentle rock of the boat, the soft lapping of the water, the splash of fish. A...

    Lakes are a great place to spend some time. You can swim, fish, boat, canoe, kayak, jet ski, tube or what ever. The size of the lake determines what you can do but lakes are a great place to spend the day. The great lakes are like the ocean only no salt or sharks to deal with...
