This 96-acre lake was constructed in the 1960s as a water-supply for Cameron. An aeration system was added to Eagle Lake to prevent the lake from stratifying during the late spring and summer. This Lake is surrounded by 100 acres of forest which provide a great setting for picnicking, nature viewing, bird watching and hiking. This lake sits adjacent to two other Cameron water supply lakes which provide additional user opportunities (see Century Lake and Sunrise Lake). Since enrollment in the Community Assistance Program, the Missouri Conservation Department has added a concrete boat ramp, privy, improved the gravel road located on the lakes western shore, and expanded the parking lot. Eagle Lake provides fishing opportunities for largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, channel catfish, flathead catfish, and hybrid striped bass. Hybrid striped bass and channel catfish are stocked periodically by the Conservation Department.
From Cameron, take Highway 36 west, then Route C north 1.50 miles, then SE Rogers Road east approximately 1 mile to the lake entrance.
