Wolf Lake Reviews

I grew up in this area and recently moved back to save some money so I can continue on with some of my educational goals. There is not a lot to do around here and it is pretty far from any kind of entertainment or culture. There are bars and woods and that's about it.

I don't think crime is very high in this area. You see the police driving around. I would not leave your vehicle unlocked, but that applies to anywhere in Muskegon county.
Close community and good school district
