Eagle Bay Park was designated as a park on May 20, 2004 following recommendations from the Kalum Land and Resource Management Plan.
Eagle Bay Park is within the traditional territory of the Haisla First Nation and contains culturally modified trees. There are remains of a Grumman Widgeon plane wreck on the beach and intertidal area at the south end of the bay. The Grumman Widgeon was a small, five to six person, twin engine, amphibious aircraft that was produced from 1941-1955. It is similar to the larger Grumman Goose.
Eagle Bay Park supports species diversity due to its proximity to a nearby river estuary, the marine environment and the sheltered inlet. The site provides important over-wintering habitat for waterfowl. Two unnamed creeks draining into the south end of Eagle Bay are used by spawning coho, pink, and chum salmon.
