We've sailed our Phantom dinghy on Lake Wallenpaupack for 12 years. We take it up with us on vacation, keep it on the shore, and for 2 weeks go out any time we want, as long as there's a breeze. If there's no breeze and calm water, we do skiing and tubing on the Trophy. The lake is 14 miles long and almost 2 miles wide at its widest point, so sailboats up to 25' are popular there.
My thinking is it's all sailing, whether lake, river, bay, or ocean. If you're lucky enough to be near open water, or willing to drive to get to it, good for you. But there's lots of fun to be had in more protected waters as well. Just pick a design and size that is most appropriate for your sailing range.
