Cowan Lake State Park is a great place to spot bald eagles. While the birds may be viewed hunting and perching along Cowan Lake, the nest is located on private property adjacent to the park and the public should respect the landowners' privacy. For more information, please visit the official Cowan Lake State Park website.
