No matter if a state is landlocked or has thousands of miles of shores along the coast, there are plenty of opportunities to spend a fun day on the water, whether it's access to the ocean or a manmade lake. Georgia may have a beautiful coastline to soak up the sun while on a trip to the beach, but thanks to all the lakes around the state, you don't have to go too far to spend some quality time on the water with family and friends.

Cheapism compiled a list of the "best lake" in each state, with a focus on finding great places for fishing and other "aquatic adventure," and determined that the best in Georgia is Lake Rabun, a watery haven in the northern corner of the state with miles of shoreline and plenty of acreage to allow for exciting activities like fishing and kayaking or simply to enjoy the beauty of nature.

Here's what the site had to say about the best lake in the state:

"Weekend warriors from Atlanta escape to this pretty reservoir in the Northeastern corner of the state. The twisty 835-acre mountain lake has 25 miles of shoreline, so there's plenty of space to spread out."
