Spring Mill Pond
Spring Mill Pond is located inside of Island Lake Recreation Area in Brighton, Michigan. After checking in at the booth, turn right and continue about 2 miles and you will turn into the Spring Mill Pond parking lot and see the beautiful pond. Spring Mill Pond is spring feed so it stays cool and clear all year long. The pond’s small size makes it easy for parents to watch their kids as they are trying to relax. For those that are strong swimmers, you can swim across the whole pond.
Public grills, picnic tables, vending machines, and bathrooms are a few amenities Spring Mill Pond has to offer. Bring a volleyball with you to use at the volleyball court located close to the lake. If fishing is more your thing, see if you can catch a brown or rainbow trout that the pond is stocked with. There are also neighboring trails that you can use to explore more of Island Lake Recreation Area.
