About Us


Indian Lake Estates (ILE) is a large, planned rural residential and commercial gated community with more than 7500 acres and 700 residences. The community includes fishing, boating, golfing and country club activities along with postal, church, dining, pier, and lake front facilities.

ILE, Inc. is the corporate entity that owns the common property and facilities managed by a Board of Directors.  The Board is elected by the resident property owners. ILE, Inc. operates as a 501c4 Florida not-for-profit corporation with an annual budget in excess of $2 million and a current assets valuation greater than $20 million. ILE’s Operations, Maintenance and Administrative offices are located at 7510 Red Grange Blvd in Indian Lake Estates. Additionally, two satellite facilities are operated: one at the Roads & Grounds Maintenance complex and the other at the Golf Course Maintenance complex.

Volunteers are very important to the management of Indian Lake Estates.  The Corporation employs a staff in the Office, Restaurant, Pro Shop, Golf course and Roads & Grounds maintenance.  Social events, Library, and cultural activities are voluntarily run and managed by Community volunteers.  These volunteers contribute to the enjoyment of life in our Community.  We have well-established Clubs and Groups and there is always room for new ones!

Volunteers also make up the Board of Directors and the various Committees that guide the professional staff and oversee the workings of the Corporation.  Everything from Finance Committee to Beautification is managed by committees who make recommendations to the Board in it's policy-making role.  Board Members and community members work together in these committees which meet at least once a month.

We are located approximately 15 miles east of Frostproof, FL and 17 miles south-east of Lake Wales, FL, at the intersection of SR 60 and CR 630, close to the southeastern tip of Polk County. The Cape Kennedy Spaceport is 55 miles to our east. Orlando, with its internationally renowned family focused Disney World, is 45 miles to our north-east. The crystal white beaches of Florida's gulf coast and Tampa Bay are an hour drive due west. We are the very heart of "Central Florida" far from its maddening crowds but close to the best of everything.
