Fort Custer Recreation Area is about a 20 minute drive east of Kalamazoo. Motor boats are restricted on the lake, which makes it a good destination for canoes and kayaks since there are no jetskis or speedboats flying past. The swimming beach is the most popular feature at Eagle Lake. It has a concession stand, restrooms, and a big picnic area. A disc golf course is laid out along the shore. There's a boat launch with parking, beyond the beach area.
The lake itself is reasonably sized and features an island near the far shore, which makes a good paddling destination. The lake is an impoundment and in places you can tree stumps underwater. This afternoon, fish were jumping out of the water, although I didn't notice any of the many anglers catch one. The Kingfishers and gulls seemed to have more luck.
Eagle Lake does have eagles, although we didn't see any this trip.
