Miscoe Lake is a reservoir [2] in Cumberland, Providence County, Rhode Island. It is about 0.8 miles long and the northern tip of the lake lies in Wrentham, Norfolk County, Massachusetts. At normal levels it has a surface area of 49 acres. [3] It has also been known as Grants Mills Pond and Miso Meadow Pond. [1]

Much of the lake is surrounded by private property and can only be accessed by residents.

The lake is home to many wildlife species, including beavers, swans, herons, cormorants, turtles, and is a temporary habitat for Canadian geese.

Located at the southern part of the lake is historical Grant's Mill. It resides on Miscoe Lake Dam, also known as Grants Mill Pond Dam, which was built in 1937. The dam's height is 14 feet with a length of 75 feet and maximum discharge is 70 cubic feet per second. Its capacity is 244 acre feet with normal storage of 226 acre feet. The dam drains an area of 3 square miles. [3]
