Lake or Beach, other activities

We're visiting our son in Fishkill, N.Y. (actually Pleasant Valley-about 10 mi. from Fishkill.) He's new to the area. We're looking for a lake or beach that's not a half day's drive. Also, what recreations are there in that area? It's a rural area & doesn't seem to have much without driving a long distance.

There are a couple of lakes. Sylvan Lake is in Beekman very close to Fishkill. There is also Fawnstock a little farther away. Lake Taconic is my favorite but a little drive about 45 min. but right off the Taconic Parkway. What recreations are you looking for? Outdoors? There are hiking trails at Bowdoin Park. Or perhaps you could go to Hyde Park (not very far) to see the Roosevelt and Vanderbilt Mansions. Vassar college is even a nice place just top take a stroll. You shoul try to eat at the CIA.
