Eagle Bend began as a postal hamlet located directly on the Mississippi River. In 1866, the river changed its course and created a natural cutoff called "Terrapin Neck". The former bend in the river soon silted up at either end, creating Eagle Lake, an oxbow lake.

The population of Eagle Bend was 50 in 1900.

Eagle Bend is situated on the east shore of Eagle Lake, and is popular for fishing and water sports.
