Nestled about 15 miles north of downtown Fort Worth in Tarrant County, Eagle Mountain Lake is an ideal place to live. This community offers a stable economy, top-notch schools and everlasting recreational activities. One of the largest communities on Eagle Mountain Lake is Lake Country Estates. Lake Country Estates is interesting not only because its sits by Eagle Mountain Lake but also because the homes are so varied in age, style, construction and architecture and the terrain is hilly and varied as it slops downward toward the lake. The homes average approximately 2900 square feet in size and range in age from early 1970's to present day. If your looking for something different, rest assured that this is not a cookie cutter style subdivision. Also, the Lake Country Estates subdivision has its own community boat dock with security controlled access where residents can launch their boats. Other complimentary subdivisions have cozied up and bordered the edges of Lake Country Estates during the last 10 - 15 years. The homes in these new areas provide all of the latest amenities and grand architectural styles, enhancing the alure of this wonderful community on the lake. Both near or farther away and on Eagle Mountain Lake are such communities and neighborhoods like The Resort on Eagle Mountain Lake, Secret Harbor, The Landing, Harbor View, The Seville, Snug Harbor, Oak Harbor, The Orchards, Eagle Ranch, Gleneagles, Eagle Ridge and The Water Front to name a few. The map shown below depicts some of the neighborhoods surrounding the lake. However, there are many others that are not shown.
Of further interest is our beautiful Eagle Mountain Park on Eagle Mountain Lake. This new park opened only last April 18, 2008. The park hours are dawn till dusk and it is operated by the Tarrant Regional Water District. The Park does not allow horses or dogs to run loose due to the potential to frighten existing wildlife and possible damage to some plants. Trails are available for access to the park but vehicles cannot go beyond the parking lot. The park is approximately 400 acres and has about 7000 feet of lake frontage. If you would like more information on the park, go online to the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD). The park is located on Morris Dido Road near the intersection of Peden Road.
