Tucked between Avon and Vail on Interstate 70, EagleVail is neither the town of Eagle nor the town of Vail. It’s its own unincorporated community with a population of around 4,000.
There’s no official downtown, but plenty of commercial businesses to support the busy population and travelers on I-70 and over 15 acres of open space to explore. Situated in the middle of the Eagle River Valley at an elevation of 7,602′ within Eagle County, this community is a mix of vacation goers and full-time residents.
The town is managed by both the EagleVail Metro District (EVMD) and EagleVail Property Owners Association (EVPOA).
EagleVail Golf Club – One of the top golf courses in the Vail Valley. From all 18 holes, you’ll have gorgeous views of the Gore Range. Grab a bite to eat and cold beer at the on-site Whiskey Hill Grill.
EagleVail Community Pool – This large lap pool functions as a community hub in the warmer months. Hosting the local swim team, open kayak nights, family movie nights, and other events make this more than just a community pool within EagleVail.
