Eagle Lake
Is a small lake situated on the eastern edge of the Adirondack mountain range of northern New York State. The towns of Ticonderoga and Crown Point share ownership over the lake. Located in Southern Essex County at the junction between Lake Champlain and Lake George atop the Champlain Plateau; Eagle Lake waters feed into the Hudson River Basin through Paradox and Schroon Lake. Eagle Lake is centrally located to the High Peaks Region, the Central Adirondack Region, the Lake George Region, and western Vermont. Rich in history, this area has the rugged character of the Adirondack Mountains blended with the charm and personality of the Lake Champlain Valley.
