Lake Ivanhoe

Lake Ivanhoe is located in Orlando, Florida, one of the many lakes found just outside of the city. Its vast area is very natural and it is deep enough for boating and fishing.

The lake covers some one hundred and twenty-six acres of land with a shoreline that measures about eighteen thousand feet long. Only a small portion of the lake has summer homes alongside it with numerous private boat ramps sticking out into the peaceful waters.

The lake is one of ninety-five lakes within the area. Interestingly, the lake is divided into three parts, the western, middle and eastern lobes. The best fishing can be found on the western and eastern sides. The middle portion is popular for motor boating. Swimming is available all along the lakeside, but visitors are advised to watch out for underwater weeds and find the portions where the lake bed is more solid as certain portions can get thick and are easy to sink into when standing up.

Lake Ivanhoe is one of the most popular lakes in the city area for recreation. As a great place for taking families and kids, it is also well-known to wildlife watchers and bird watchers. Best of all, it is very clean and perfectly safe for both swimming and snorkelling.
