Welcome to our community!
We think Lake Lincolndale is a special place and we
are eager to share it with you. Lake Lincolndale's residents are
a diverse group with a common interest: the lake. This common interest
helps bring the community together, not just in lake issues, but
also in community welfare issues.
The Lake Lincolndale
Property Owners' Association (LLPOA) was formed 80 years
ago to serve homeowner families in Lake Lincolndale. At its core,
the LLPOA is a social and recreational organization, but its responsibilities
extend to making sure the community remains a pleasant and safe
place to live. While we work to keep the lake clean and the surrounding
grounds and clubhouse maintained, we also monitor road maintenance;
keep an eye out for unsafe traffic conditions; watch for and remedy
mischievous and illegal activity; and help neighbors who may find
themselves in periods of difficulty. We watch out for one another.
The LLPOA maintains a beautiful beach with swimming
under lifeguard supervision. Open from noon to 8 PM June though labor Day, the beach has a snack bar, and a game
room and outdoor playset for the kids. The LLPOA hosts many events
such as dances, luaus and cornroasts throughout the year, and the
clubhouse is fully functional with two kitchens, a large hall, and
downstairs lounge for members' private events. More social activity
is provided by both a ladies' organization and a men's club, though
neither group is exclusive to any gender. There is always something
going on at the clubhouse.
Working with the county board
of health, the state DEC,
and the Federation
of Lake Associations we have developed numerous programs for
sampling and analyzing the water and surrounding watershed for chemical
and biological pollution. In addition to keeping the water safe
for swimming, we work hard to keep the lake free of weeds and algae
without disturbing the ecological balance, and try to prevent pollutants
from entering the lake by stopping them at their source. And we
use natural means whenever possible. For example, controling weeds
by stocking the lake with weed-eating carp fish.
