Lakes in NY and CT.

hi, we have a small inflatable sailboat that eventually I hope to take on the Hudson in upstate NY but for now, we're sticking to some of the larger lakes in the state parks. I'm wondering if anyone has been sailing in the lakes in Harriman, Copake, Saratoga, Candlewood, etc. and if they have any thoughts about the best days to go and which have better access and wind conditions and maybe fewer motor boats I ran into a situation last week at Lake Taghkanic, which doesn't allow motorized boats but where I couldn't get back to shore because there were so many kids running around and boats piled up that there was no place to land safely. This wasn't even on the weekend. I'm hoping not to repeat that again.
