Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island in Maine

Eagle Lake

You cannot miss Eagle Lake as you drive on Mount Desert Island. At 425 acres, it is the largest fresh water lake in Acadia National Park.

An easy access point is along Route 233 which runs east-west along the northern edge of the lake. There are two parking areas, one on each side of the road. This is a picturesque spot as there is a stone bridge and a Carriage Road, which completely encircles the lake providing a wonderful opportunity for a refreshing walk or jog.

Fishing is allowed but a Maine Fishing License is required for Maine residents 16 years or older, and 12 years or older for nonresidents. Kayak Rentals are available at various locations on the island if needed.
