Eagleville Pond is located in Coventry and Mansfield and is an old millpond impoundment on the Willimantic River in the Thames River Drainage Basin. The 18 ft. dam was restored in 1994. There are a number of low, brushy islands in the northern end of the lake with numerous channels winding between them. The watershed is 68,984 acres encompassing the Willimantic River watershed. The land surrounding the lake is mostly agricultural with moderate levels of residential development. In addition, to the Willimantic River, the pond is fed by Cedar Swamp Brook, Eagleville Brook and several small brooks. Outlet water spills over the dam continues onward as the Willimantic River.

The transparency of the lake is turbid with visibility of 5 ft. in late summer. The fishing is reportedly fair for largemouth bass, chain pickerel, yellow perch, sunfish and bullheads.
