EAGLE NEST LAKE

STATE PARK

Page subtitle


Located on the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, Eagle Nest Lake is surrounded by the stunning scenery of the high mountains of the Moreno Valley. This lake is regularly stocked with trout and salmon. Anglers can fish from the banks or by boat and ice fish in the winter. At 8,300 feet in elevation, the park offers a cool retreat from the summer heat for fisherman, boaters, campers, hikers and wildlife enthusiasts. A 9-basket disc golf course is located near the visitor center and is playable year round. An abundance of animals make Eagle Nest Lake an ideal location for wildlife viewing.
