Cheat Lake Reviews

2 reviews
The college in the area is a very party-oriented school, and has started riots in the past. The infrastructure is terrible, and in the winter, a 4WD vehicle is necessary to go anywhere because the DOT doesn't treat the roads.

There are some fun things to do. Its a very busy town and not very good road systems to make it that enjoyable. Overall it's a good place to live and I would definitely live here if I had to do it all over again.
