Shafer Township Reviews

The overall feel in Chisago is a fun safe community. With many fun activity's to do here year round from waterskiing to snowmobiling, we have it all. Our community was ranked top ten in the nation to live in! If I had the opportunity to live here again I wouldn't think twice about it. I would love to come back here to my home town to live here.

The police presence is very high in Chisago. With the county sheriffs in town as well, there are a fair amount of cop cars patrolling in the area.
CJ's bar and grill has the best food for low prices, and is comfortable for the whole family.
