General Info
This is especially true if your options are not limited by a budget. The truth is, however, that many of us do have to stick to a budget these days.

This is what makes choosing a nearby lake a more feasible option rather than picking one that is a couple days drive from where you live. If you live in an area with lots of lakes to choose from, you will find the hardest part is selecting which one is right.

First and foremost, you should decide what sort of accommodations you would prefer. Would you and the family love to camp out under the stars, or is a cabin more to your liking?
Two Person Getaways
When it is just the two of you, you may want to consider staying at a bed and breakfast. You will get a cozy little room, and most of them include at least one meal for each night's stay. Many of them rent their rooms on a nightly basis; however, some may rent them out weekly as well.
Small Families
For the small family, a quaint cabin may be just the thing. With such comforts as fireplaces, picnic tables, grills, microwaves, and even fully equipped kitchens, your family can spend more time outside ad on the water rather than having to worry about getting in soon enough to get a fire going and tents up for the night.
Creature Comforts
If you are looking at vacationing on the banks of a large resort lake, such as Lake Lanier, then a condo may be just the thing, especially if you are really looking to be pampered. These can typically be rented from individuals or through a vacation rental company.

No matter which sort of accommodations you choose it will be important to decide what sorts of activities you will want to do. For instance, if you intend on doing some water skiing, towable tubing, fishing, or some other boating activity, you will want to choose a destination that offers boat and equipment rentals unless you have these things already on hand. And you may want to reserve these in advance, to make sure they are available for your visit. Check to see if the rentals include a Garmin GPS for boats, which can be very handy when traveling on a lake that may be unfamiliar to you.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you will want to pick a destination that caters to all your family members. You would not want to take your beloved dog on vacation with you, only to find out that your accommodations do not allow pets and/or the lakeside prohibits them as well.

Things To Remember
If roughing it is your idea of fun, you will want to make sure that you take certain precautions. If camping in an area with a high population of wildlife, it would be best to ensure that your chosen spot is as secure as possible. No one wants to take unnecessary risks when it comes to taking your family on vacation. This being so, you should secure all foodstuffs in such a manner that they will be quite safe from animal prowlers.

Where To Go
Choosing the location of your lake vacation should also involve knowing which one offers the right qualities. Why choose a lake that is all rough brush around the bank if you are planning on doing a great deal of swimming? Instead, you should look for a lake that offers some degree of development and artificial sandy beaches. This will let you get to and from the water with little to no trouble.

Also, if you will be bringing your own boat, you should make sure that there is plenty of boat ramp space available. It would be quite aggravating getting to the lake, and finding that the single boat ramp is closed for whatever reason, or that there are so many people trying to get in that you cannot get to the water.

Time To Go
With the right planning and preparation you will be well on your way to having the time of your life. Simply pack all your necessities, as well as your fishing gear, bathing suits, and towable tubes, so that you can take advantage of the water as much as possible.

Go ahead; head out to the lake and be secure in the knowledge that you have chosen an outstanding way to enjoy your time with the family.
