I’ve lived in Camden my whole life. I love the down town area is my favorite the way the mayor has done the side walks and the plants are amazing. But what I would love to see changed in Camden is the drug problem, get more help for the people that want it and can’t find it because everyone is afraid situations. Help kids that don’t have much because the parents are using drugs.

Camden is a very affordable and safe place to live. Camden has a very great public school called Camden Fairview. The crime rate is at an all time low in this town, and most of the people are very friendly. I would recommend moving to Camden if you are looking for a fresh start.
Camden is a small growing town. Roughly about 15,000 people. Everyone is respectful as far as manners and southern hospitality. It's really for older individuals who are ready to retire!
