Chamberlain Reviews

Chamberlain is a scenic little town with cute shops. It boasts of being an outdoor paradise. But if you like the outdoors, your only real options in Chamberlain are fishing or hunting. The river is an added bonus in the summer. There isn't much for hiking or other outdoor activities. The people of Chamberlain will smile and say hi but you can't go far past the surface. They like to keep it small and don't like change. They are content in their little bubbles and worry about the latest gossip and how Johnny is doing in basketball. Overall boring town with close minded people.
