Umm, I've been on the same quest for a while. You can find waterfront land for under 100k but there's always something wrong with it like powerlines or a dry cove or not able to put in a dock.

I've been looking at this place a little bit, http://www.baytreecommunity.com/general.html and there are a few other communites like it that I've found through browsing. Can't tell if they are good or bad though, the hoa rules at some of them seem a little restrictive. They have some lots and resales for under 150k.
One more link for Baytree http://www.cwmktg.com/BayTreeNew.htm

Also check out http://www.hilton-realty.com/lots.htm (broken link) for some other info. Not sure how up to date it is though.

Lakes can vary considerably in color based on the amount of water going through them and the soil around them. Color alone won't provide a very accurate indicator of purity, although it can be disconcerting to see an emerald green lake or one that appears brown on a cloudy day. I've seen posts where the poster was upset that there were leaves in the lake during fall. Yeah, the leaves fall off the tree and go right into the water. Magically, within a few days, they are on the bottom. As long as the water flow from the tributaries continues, there's no problem. It's mother nature's way of providing fish habitats and nutrients. The problem I first had was in realizing that swimming in a lake will never be like swimming in a swimming pool. Once I got around that idea, I've come to enjoy the lake, green, blue or somewhere in between with leaves and all.
