This is a place that has a surreal feeling. We went from not knowing what a coon dog is to learning how special a coon dog can be to many of their owners. This cemetery has existed for many decades and it causes one to ponder the wonderment of life and the many treasures of life. I liked that there... More

Very pretty place and a great way to pay homage to a fantastic group of animals. It's off the beaten path, but well worth a visit!

Since we don't own any pets, I didn't know what to expect at a dog cemetery, but my first impression was that this is very sweet. I am so glad we drove out here to visit....and it is a hike...about 12 miles down Hwy 247 and another 5 miles on Coon Dog Cemetery Road. But it was well worth the... More

If you like dogs and have some extra time, the Coon Dog Cemetery is a one of a kind attraction. It is small, but the love these folks had for there dogs is truly moving. A good coon dog is hard to come by and these pets have been honored in the right way by their families! Check it out... More

We went there as a lark. It did not take long to be affected by it. We were moved. These critters were loved and missed.

We visited this attraction after hearing good things from others and we really enjoyed it. It is very interesting and worth the time . Being a dog lover I was impressed by the way people remembered their beloved pets. It is unique and one of a kind! Very well worth a visit. The kids loved it too.

Something interesting to see if you are in the area. Needs WAY more signage to assure you that you are going the correct way. It's located off main road out in the booneys so to speak. The cemetery is one of a kind. It's something to say that you have seen.

It is exactly what it says it is . . . a cemetery for prize coon dogs. It is "out in the middle of nowhere" but why not stop and pay your respects to man's best friend at the world's only coon dog cemetery? It is a few miles passed The Alabama Music Hall of Fame and the Rattle Snake... More

You really have to want to see this unique and interesting attraction to make the trip. It is way out in the country on windy and hilly roads. Plus the day we went they had recently tarred and chipped the road so the rocks were banging against the underside of our car all the way there and back. It is... More
