Eagle Lake is a town in Aroostook County first organized for election purposes on July 11, 1859 from the township T16 R7. After many organizations and reorganizations, it was incorporated as a town on March 16, 1911.
Settled in the 1840's by Acadian-French and Irish immigrants, it was named for the many eagles at the Lake by a Major Strickland traveling north from Bangor during the Aroostook War period.
Eagle Lake spawns the Fish River, which empties into the St. John River at Fort Kent. Maine Route 11 serves the town as it moves from Fort Kent, though Eagle Lake and south through the western portion of Aroostook County.
Eagle Lake Public Reserved Land, in nearby T16 R6 and T16 R 5 WELS, is a 23,000-acre area including most of Eagle Lake. It abuts Square Lake to the east with a thoroughfare connecting the two lakes. Access is off the Sly Brook Road, connecting with Route 11 at Soldier Pond (Wallagrass) or by boat from the launch in the town of Eagle Lake.
