Buies Creek Reviews

2 reviews
Buies Creek NC is a small town about 45 minutes outside of Raleigh. It is where Campbell University is located. I enjoy the peace and quite out here to most, but there are other several small towns close by and as mentioned earlier, Raleigh is not too far away.
Review Buies Creek
The best thing about Buies Creek is always feeling safe. I can walk across campus at 1 am after studying in the library and not be scared. The only downfall is the rural feel. There is not much night life activity unless you travel to Holly Springs or Raleigh area.
