Living in Eagle Lake and Community Highlights
Eagle Lake sits beside the 1,400 acre Eagle Lake which is the largest private lake in Texas. The smaller Lower Lake sits below Eagle Lake – both are privately owned. The rice fields and the lake provide an ideal wintering ground for many migratory birds, and this has contributed to a thriving hunting industry each winter. As a result, Eagle Lake has earned the title – “Goose Hunting Capital of the World.”
