Grays Harbor County Reviews

1 review
Grays Harbor is a community that could be great but instead is filled with drugs and homelessness. As a smallish woman, I would never walk around by myself. The people can be scary. Mental illness is high in this area and not everyone is safe to be around. However, there is a very strong sense of community. Everyone is related or are friends.
