This booming city between the Boise River and the foothills has grown by almost 70 percent in the last 15 years. With a current population of 24,000, Eagle was recently lauded as the “Happiest Place in Idaho”. This is where you will find the well-known Eagle Island State Park and a quaint historical downtown with shops and restaurants. The city has easy access to McCall and all the recreational opportunities of the Idaho mountains. Eagle is well funded and makes continuous improvements to its portion of the Boise River Greenbelt and its parks and public water features.
