    This area of the county is known as the safest in the county! I never feel violated and leave things unlocked regularly.
    Review Big Lake Township
    I love living here each and every day of my life! The people are so nice except for the occasional snob but other than that its a great experience with a white Caucasian atmosphere that is amazing! I Love It!
