It is a very quiet, non-noticeable little town.
Very peaceful, lots of land. Not a lot of people live here, when we first moved to Kemp, there was hardly any people. The city hall and police station is very very small😂. But even though it’s small they always protect us and do their jobs. Kemp also only has around 3 fast food places and 1 smaller version of Brookshire store. I would very much like to have more food restaurants so we wouldn’t have to drive 20 min. But overall I’ve been living here for about 8 years and I love it! I like it way more than the city and I can’t see myself leaving.
The city park has never been the absolute best but either way i always have fun when I go.
Creating amazing memories with my family members their was the most fun thing ever.

Great small town, not many shops or restaurants, but comfortable feel. Good school, businesses are mostly local. Family friendly and affordable.
My neighborhood is a pretty good neighborhood. Everybody kind of stays out of eachothers business. The houses are kind of spread out so we're not all right by each other.
