Spring Creek Reviews

Spring Creek, Nevada, is a town crawling with racist, bigoted, homophobic reactionary conformists. It exists for the sole intent of housing miners that were essentially coerced into their profession, while dead animals and broken-down trucks are a common sight on the side of the roads; most of which are vastly underdeveloped, akin to the intelligence quota of our populace. The veracity of my claims may be verified by any inhabitant of the town, or anyone who has ever visited; no one likes Spring Creek. Literally no one.

My husband and I relocated to Spring Creek as he is in mineral exploration and this is the community for it. We are surrounded by gold mines, which you would assume would bring a lot of resources to the local towns. However, there really is nothing here. Sure, we have a Walmart. As far as outdoor activities, such as a putt-putt golf there is nada. Would love to see more activity inspired businesses in the area.
I have lived here for about 10 years and really enjoy the community! I enjoy having space and the view of the Ruby Mountains. I would like to see a facility like a YMCA or something that has an indoor pool.
