The Eagle Lake basin was formed by collapse of the ablating Lake Michigan lobe over a tunnel valley and subsequent reoccupation of the collapse basin by the lobe during local final phase of glaciation. Latest collapse occurred prior to about 16,250 but after 18,600 cal yr B.P. A hydrologically open lake occupied Eagle Lake basin from 16,250 cal yr B.P. to the present. The lake was described in 1834 by the original land survey, but was drained for agriculture by 1939.
