Originally founded as the Village of Mill Point Launch in 1849, the members of the community adopted its first Village Charter and became the Village of Spring Lake in 1869. Although the community’s original ties to the lumber industry have long passed, the Village serves as a great place to live and continues to play a role in the northwest Ottawa County’s tourism industry. The community began as a wonderful place to live, work and play and that tradition continues today. Our community, which lies upriver from Lake Michigan, spans 1.1 sq. miles, and has a population of 2,514.
