Eagle tower no longer exists, it was taken down in September. There are signs that it might possibly be rebuilt, but nothing is happening with it right now

Climbing this tower is for the adventurous. But it's so old now that it is locked out for safety. Wood near the water can age quickly so it's in everyone's interest to close the tower. No date for reopening.

We were there 7.15.2016 and the tower was back open. We climbed to the top and the view was amazing. Glad it was open as this is a main attraction in this small park.

We were here last year and can see a huge panoramic view to 10 miles away. It was damaged from a storm a while back, so there is a fund-raiser to rebuild the tower.
