I'm looking for a nice lake around the midwest for a week trip of relaxing and boarding/skiing. Looking to rent a house for a week. In past years we have gone to smith mountain lake, va and norris lake, tn. I flew there on those occasions, however now I'm taking my boat and I'm coming from Wisconsin.
I had looked at Lake Barkley/Kentucky Lake (a beautiful lake I imagine), and that's ~550 miles and the furthest I want to travel. I'm wondering if there are any lakes that may be nice and a bit closer. Friends will be traveling from Ohio, so I guess I'd like to avoid going straight west if there is even anything over there.
Looking for mid-late June, so the water should be warm just about anywhere.
