    Lago de Chapala is Mexico's largest freshwater lake; it's located southeast of Guadalajara, with the southern section in the state of Michoacan. It's a popular day trip for people wanting a break from the city and also, a popular retirement spot for American and Canadian expats. Lago de Chapala is definitely not in the wild--small communities dot the lake (as do gated communities) but it's scenic and there are some nice, light hikes. In terms of camping on the lake--if you don't mind electricity and running water, there are a couple RV parks that offer camp sites. Not exactly roughing it but the camping is cheap and easy to access.
