Eagle Mountain Lake was created by the damming of the West Fork of the Trinity River in 1932. Located only fifteen miles north of downtown Fort Worth, it is a popular recreation area for city dwellers to go boating, fish, swim, and enjoy other water activities such as wake boarding, kayaking, and waterskiing.
The hills, bluffs, and mountains that surround the lake have beautiful views, and are easily accessed from Eagle Mountain Park, which has five miles of hiking trails. Shady Grove Park on the southwest shore of the lake has a shaded playground, a fine beach, softball fields, and tennis courts, while Twin Points Park at the southern tip of Eagle Mountain Lake has a three-lane boat ramp, a beach for swimming, pavilions, and concessions.
