Merry Lake is a 150 Acre all sports lake located in southern Hillsdale County, Michigan.

More than 140 years ago at what is now known as Merry Lake, a grist mill was in operation.  It was powered by the water flow of Silver Creek and the headwaters of its own mill pond.  This mill operated at this location for many, many years.

In 1966, long after the mill ceased operations a farmer  by the name of Robert Cooper began to see his dream of a recreation lake being realized on the old mill site.

Construction of the lake began in 1966 with the construction of a dam that measured 550 feet long, 20feet high and 70 feet wide at its base.  Not long after its completion the lake was full of the waters of Silver Creek and the many fresh water springs in the area.

 The damming resulted in 150 acres of lake and 3 miles of rolling shore line.

 Merry Lake is a private lake and all plats are controlled by recorded. restrictive connivances to insure and maintain the quality atmosphere that has been created in the Merry Lake community.
