    Black Creek Reviews

    2 reviews
    I love living in Black Creek. I grew up there and it was so nice to be a part of everything that goes on in a town yet not having to deal with all the noise of a big city. The only thing that I would like to see is that the town be taken care of a little better. The roads could be better. I would also like to see not so many bars.
    Review Black Creek
    Black Creek is a wonderful small town with plans on improving our main street and making our town more appealing to people passing through. We are the gate to the north woods and we have a lot to offer.
