Spring Lake Township Reviews
Rating 4.32 out of 5 22 reviews
Everyone here is super nice and welcoming and the school is amazing and you really feel at home here. Although it isn't a big city so you don't have seemingly endless things to do, the town is beautiful and growing! I feel very safe and welcome and loved here. There are so many trails you can walk outdoors whether you want through the forest or by the beach we have it. Overall love Spring Lake.
A small town, but with lots of things to offer. The school system at spring lake is excellent and challenging for all students, along with great opportunities to play sports. Finding jobs in spring lake township is easy and the community is very helpful and inviting.
It is beautiful here. the diversity seems low, but the schools are amazing. There is a lot to do here, most people are friendly and at times the traffic can be a bit much.
I’ve grown up in Spring Lake for the past 16, almost 17 years. Even though it’s a small town, there is so much to do. We have a lake where you can boat, swim, kayak, ect. We live 10 minutes for Lake a Michigan which has endless possibilities. Our current down town area is being rebuilt to an epicurean village. Overall, spring lake is a great place.
I moved here in my sophomore year of high school and I knew it'd be a change from my previous town. To begin with, it was larger and more lively. I finished my high years here and loved it. Being close to the beach allowed for many opportunities to hang out with friends, bike, swim in the lake, and boating. If you love being outdoors this is the town for you! The 13 mile Laker Loop is perfect for running enthusiasts, the surrounding lakes provide family fun all day long, and the people in the community are so caring. Spring Lake is a beautiful town filled with everlasting fun.
I enjoy Spring Lake! I think that it is very safe but I feel that most kids are too protected. We live in a bubble of people with the same conservative views which is difficult.
It is a very safe area. Spring Lake Township is accepting of everyone and does not discriminate. Even though there are many positives, there are also some negatives. The main street is a very busy road, and it is not very lively. This is fixed by the fact that it is about 8 minutes away from a resort town, Grand Haven. It would also be nice to see a little more diversity, most of Spring Lake is white.
I have grown up here my entire life. Spring Lake lacks diversity, but provides a very tight knit community. The community supports one another during rough times. Members of the community also support the local sports teams and have a high reputation for success. The education I have received from Spring Lake Public Schools is outstanding and I feel very prepared for college. The teachers pushed me to become better, not only as a student, but also a better person. In addition to the education, Spring Lake is a safe area with little crime. There is lots to do, which includes spending lots of time at the gorgeous beaches of Lake Michigan. It is a great place to grow up!
A very small, quiet, and conservative community. The schools are excellent and in the top two percent of the nation. However, a lot of the community is elderly but with many young families moving in as more residential areas are being built. It is also very close to Grand Haven which is extremely touristy in the summer with plenty of fun things to do like Coast Guard.
This is a great place to live. The schools are good. The lake and the surrounding are provide lots of things to do, especially if you are a fan of water and the outdoors. The people are great, too. I grew up a military brat and have seen quite a few places. Spring Lake is the best place I have ever lived.
I was raised in Spring Lake and lived there for 20 years of my life. It is a friendly, safe, environment with a caring and involved community.
Spring Lake is a safe community close to Lake Michigan beaches. It is a great place for families, but doesn't offer much nightlife.
Spring Lake is great town to live in. Five minutes to Lake Michigan and the beach. Very nice bike trails and public parks. It is a somewhat small town so expect to see people you know when you're out and about. Very safe. Most people do not even lock their doors. Nice local bars and restaurants, but most close earlier than in a big city. Not a diverse town.
A great area to live. I would recommend it as one of the best places to live. You will feel comfortable and safe in this community.
The closest restaurants to my city are at least 15 minutes away, so whether it be in Muskegon or Grand Haven. But popular restaurants are usually expensive due to being on the lakeshore. Which attracts a wealthier lifestyle as well, which shows the restaurants they can charge more and more, because people are willing to pay the higher prices.
Basically everyone in the surrounding area has a job whether that be in Grand Rapids, Grand Haven, or Muskegon which are the closest cities that have a relatively large job market, but there is for sure enough jobs to go around for everyone living in the area. But the job outlook is increasing even though it is slowly increasing, there are more and more companies integrating into the area.
I live in a small little town with a lot of homes and a few grocery stores, but the grocery stores aren't extensive to any extent. They usually have what is needed, like the bare essentials. There are a few other types of businesses in the area, like laundromats, car washes, dog washes, and hardware stores along with a few little food joints around the area. So the local businesses provide what is needed but there definitely aren't an abundance of options for food or groceries.
