Pretty average place to live. Could improve on some things, but overall it isn’t a bad area at all. Doesn’t seem to be much crime around the areas.

This isn't the friendliest of counties. If you like living in the middle of nowhere and see your neighbors on "people of walmart . com", then you'll be ok here. The people are nice and friendly from first contact to strangers, but if you've lived here for a while, their niceness wears off.
Randolph county lacks in most popular shopping centers. They have poor school funding. But the community is close knit.
