Immersed in nature

Roughly 800 of the 940 acres of Canyon of the Eagles are a nature preserve that is home to a variety of wildlife, including three threatened or endangered species of birds. Canyon of the Eagles takes its name from the American Bald Eagle that nests within the surrounding area from October through March each year. The park provides a home for the endangered Black-Capped Vireo and Golden-Cheeked Warbler and is dedicated to showcasing the flora and fauna of Lake Buchanan (lake levels may fluctuate). It's not unusual to sight a bobcat, rabbit, snake, deer, roadrunner or armadillo. Wildflowers are abundant throughout the spring and early summer.

Built in 1999, the buildings within the resort area were designed by the renowned Lake Flato Architects to encourage connection with land and nature. The habitat-saving landscape and design have garnered Canyon of the Eagles certification from the  Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as a Texas Wildscape and Audubon HOTE 020 birding site. Park staff uses sustainable and conservation-focused practices in their daily duties.

Boaters on Lake Buchanan and other lakes are required to drain their boats after use to help prevent the spread of zebra mussels. Learn more.
