Part of the 8,000-acre Lieber State Recreation Area, Cagles Mill Lake attracts eagle watchers from around the country.

Mill Creek feeds the 1,400-acre Cagles Mill Lake, and the beautiful Cataract Falls, inside Lieber State Recreation Area. A main attraction on this lake, in southern Putnam County, is a bald eagle’s nest to which the birds return every season. The lake has a marina, with mooring and supplies, as well as a visitors center. Around it, there is plentiful hiking, picnicking and fishing, as well as hunting in season.
