That's not to say that Badger is just about the wilderness. No, that is not the case at all! The people here are wonderful, there are always fun things to do whether it's family events you are looking for or night life entertainment!

The economy here is great as well with serious job growth and opportunities, and the cost of living is honestly quite reasonable! Tourism is also attractive in this area as visitors love coming and basking in our way of life!

Badger really does have it all, whether you are looking for the out of the ordinary quite place but still connected to civilization. I love it here and I love that it is my home! Read Less
