Random Lake is a quiet, small town where not much happens. It is relatively safe and is a good place to grow up. There is not much to do around the town, so the drive to entertainment and stores is around 15-20 minutes. The lake is nice and the beach is a summer attraction many find use in. There are a few good places to eat, including Pizzaria, Globe Lanes, and the Homefront. The education at the public school can be lacking if students are less motivated than others. Some teachers only have one style of teaching and it lessens the amount of information students grasp in lessons.

Random Lake is a wholesome town for those who prefer a know your neighbor setting. Above average school and sports. Small enough to navigate quickly, big enough to feel like the world is still moving!
Very peaceful and quiet town. Beautiful park with smaller beach and boat launch. Going on my senior year at Random Lake High School and have had no complaints. Small classes make it easy to get involved, but wish the high school was not connected to the middle and elementary schools. Also a pain to drive 20-25 minutes one way to get groceries.
