City of Eagle Lake
PO Box 38
Eagle Lake has long been an agricultural community. Rice is the major crop; however, cotton, grains, and cattle production are also important to the economy. Sand and gravel mines around Eagle Lake supply the materials for construction to a large part of southeast Texas. Today, Eagle Lake is diversifying its economy with a strong emphasis on bringing new industry into the area as well as helping existing business prosper and grow.
The rice fields, along with the largest private lake in the State of Texas, Eagle Lake, provide an attractive wintering ground for many migratory birds. The hunting industry that thrives each winter has earned Eagle Lake the title — "Goose Hunting Capital of the World."
