    Big Prairie Township Reviews

    2 reviews
    It is a safe, beautiful place to live. Summers are warm, sometimes hot. Winters bring snow to enjoy. Winter sports are a big deal hear as well. Camping and boating on the lakes and dams are a big attraction to tourists.

    Everyone looks out for everyone. There is some robberies in the area. Always have good lighting outside and lock doors to be safe.
