Potts Camp Reviews

This small town lacks vitality. The school district is unsatisfactory and this can hugely impact a student's college experience, because that's what happened to me. There are no activities to do in town. One positive thing I have to say is it is a cozy town and there is never any crime, but it's a dud. I believe that is the case for all small towns, but I would like to see new things come to town. New restaurants, stores, etc. would be great! An upgraded park with more playground equipment for the children would make a big difference. There needs to be someone with a vision to revitalize this slowly dying town.

I moved to Potts Camp in the year of 2015 from Tucson, Arizona. It was weird coming here because the town was super small and if you were new, you stuck out like a sore thumb. The thing that I like best about Potts Camp is that everyone really knows everyone, everyone is like a family and it was really cool to me. Even if you did not cooperate with someone else well, you'd get over it and be friends the next day. It was different, but fascinating.
You would have to drive 20 minutes to find a job.
