Hawk Cove is a residential community located south of State Highway 276 and west of Farm Road 751 about sixteen miles south of Greenville in southern Hunt County. This development on Lake Tawakoni was begun in the early 1970s by property owners Sawyer and Culberson. Originally the residential properties were developed as Whiskers Retreat Nos. 1, 2, and 3. When the community incorporated in January 1999 the name was changed to Hawk Cove. In 2000 there were 457 residents. Hawk Cove has a mayor and city council and its own police services.
