Your New IPOIA Board

Office Hours–  Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

A good turn out for our March IPOIA meeting.  Office hours are on Saturday 10 am to 3 pm .  Please come in for new stickers. 

Our goal is to continue to keep our lakes and parks private, so please be understand when someone asks “where’s your sticker?” 


We have decided to keep Candy Cane Park’s name as Candy Cane.  As in all our parks, please enjoy using them, remember to remove your trash as most parks are mowed by volunteers. It’s the right thing to do.  For our Lakes…in the past Galahad and Tristan homeowners declined weed control.  If you want this addressed in the future please inform us. We plan on treating Charmaine when the water temp is up 50 to 60 degrees.  Diquat or similar herbicide is used which doesn’t hurt the fish or other aquatic beings. Please follow directions on label. Putting more in doesn’t make it work better. When we treat we try to do the ends of the lake, and other pockets of growth. If there is some around your dock please be responsible and treat it.  If you rake it out or cut it, and the  part left in the water can float away and re grow.  Please also check water vehicles and trailers when removing them from any lake.

We also have changed the limit of the length of piers.  For new construction, we will be limiting piers to 25 ft only.  This is especially important for safety on the ski lake, but also for the over all beauty of the lakes.


Reminder that our office number has changed. 409-356-5634. By having Ivanhoeinternet.org and using a voip phone we have saved $140 a month! Thank you very much to the IvanhoeInternet for helping us with this! Every little savings means more money we can turn around into our parks and lakes.

We are looking for someone who might be interested in doing the monthly newsletter.  Someone who is computer savvy would be best.   If so interested please give us a call.

Unlimited High Speed Internet is available in Ivanhoe from Rarity Communications. For more information, visit www.IvanhoeInternet.org or call 832-234-0400, press option 7.

IPOIA Office Hours – Please note holiday office hours above.


We are in the process of providing a secure drop box so that your payments and requests for permits can be dropped off and we will then mail your permits back to you if you are unable to come by on Saturday.  Parks and lakes are for use by members and their invited guests who display the current permit on their vehicle or watercraft. 

All questions about permits should be sent to our email address landoflakes880@gmail.com which is monitored daily or you can call 409-283-3653 and leave a message.  Returning you call will depend on when we are next in the office.  For ongoing activities in Ivanhoe, at the top of this page you will see a “Newsletter”.  Click it and the current newsletter will appear with lots of good stuff.  Thanks to Patsy Morris for doing a great job on the monthly newsletter.


Permission granted to fish by payment of maintenance fees and purchase of yearly IPOIA permit ONLY! ALL OTHERS ARE TRESPASSING

Texas Parks and Wildlife Code – Title 5. Subtitle B. Chapter 66. Subchapter A.

Sec. 66.002. – CONSENT TO TAKE FISH FROM PRIVATE WATER. (a) No person may catch, take, or attempt to catch or take any aquatic animal life by any means or method from any privately owned waters without the consent of the landowner or the landowner’s agent.

Our lakes have become very popular to those who do not own property within Ivanhoe.  The Board takes protecting the parks and lakes for use by members and their invited guests very seriously.  Trespassing charges will be brought against those who don’t belong in our parks and lakes.  As we have stopped those without permits this year, so many of them say, “My grandparents, uncle, parents, own property out here.”  If that is the case please purchase a permit or obtain a guest pass for them.
