Default Crescent City area info needed

Hi,
We are in England and looking to buy a campground business in Crescent City. We have 2 young children and my mum (American) to think about too. What is the area like? Schools? Friendly community? etc.
Many thanks.

Crescent City is a great little well-preserved town in Putnam County. It has a cute downtown area and a pretty well-organized group of civic minded citizens. I drove through once years ago and was impressed by how spiffed up the town was for being out of the loop so to speak. The schools aren't the best but if you're an involved parent, things should go well for you.

thanks for reply. Does anyone know if it's the kind of area the RV travellers/Snowbirds would come to? With regards to the schools not being the best do you happen to know why that is? And in what way?
Many thanks.

It is not an area that one would think of for snowbirds/RV travelers. It is off the beaten path in a rural area, which is why the schools aren't the best. Many trades workers, migrant farmer workers, etc. live in the area. It doesn't have a population of professionals living there and as a result the resources aren't there in terms of a tax base for providing a high level of education.
