    Baugo Township Reviews

    The area that I live in is a dead end road, with some elderly people. Not many kids, nor young couples. I currently live behind the high school I graduated from. The view from the kitchen is great! If you love high school baseball, then you'll love the view from my house. At night, there are no lights to illuminate the road. So its not the best place to go out for a walk at night. But the overall place is calm, quite and peaceful. If you like a quite, sunny and peaceful place... my house is for you!
    Review Baugo Township
    On my specific street, I think there are finances wasted on things we don't want. They cut down a beautiful tree and paved an ugly, dirty road. Also, we think the city of Elkhart is planning to annex our neighborhood, and we don't want that, so we're irritated. At least some of us are. The nice rural community (if you could call it that) has a good feel to it, but there have been robberies in the past year that makes me paranoid.
    There's not much to do in Elkhart. Once you've done something, you've done it. There's not much to do and if you feel adventurous you can take a trip to Chicago or Ft. Wayne for entertainment. It's not completely terrible though, the job market's picking up after the economic crash in 2008 and it's relatively inexpensive to live here.
