Howard Eaton Reservoir sign

Eaton Reservoir is located in both North East and Greenfield Townships and is approximately 246 acres in size. Eaton supports several varieties of game fish, including bass, northern pike and walleye. There are also abundant populations of panfish available as well.

Watercraft operation on Eaton is by either manual propulsion or electric motor --- gas motors are prohibited. All boats, including those non-powered, need to be registered, as this reservoir is controlled under PA Fish and Boat Commission property regulations.

Launch ramps and parking areas are located on both the western side (Black Road/Ashton Road) and on the eastern side (adjacent Stateline Road) of the Reservoir.
