If you're in this area, you have to go to the Coon Dog Cemetery - just because it's here - if for no other reason. Dogs laid to rest here get the same treatment as people, most have granite or marble headstones. There's a big, tall stone memorial that explains this unique place. We don't even have dogs, but found... More

We drove all the way down Coon Dog Cemetery in hopes of visiting but found the drive chained off. So disappointed.

It ended up being just a glorified pet cemetery. There is a covered picnic area, but that's the nicest thing there. I expected some more history to it, or moreso, some historical significance. There's also some statue that has been vandalized and is now fenced off, and since then hasn't been repaired or anything. Even in it's original state, it... More

Little bit of a drive to see, but we knew that going into our trip. Whether you're a dog lover or a dog hunter it's a must see. You can't help but feel the love these owners had for their dogs. So pack a lunch and take the pretty drive out into the country and make a day of it.

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.
