This is a one-of-a-kind cemetery because only coon dogs can be buried here. It dates back to the 1940's. There are a number of headstones, some with unique sayings and names of coon dogs that have transitioned to chase the great raccoon in dog heaven. There is a pavilion with tables for get-togethers. There are a couple of outhouses should... More

This was amazing to see how dedicated people can be to their dogs. Only certified Coon Dogs are buried here. We went in the fall and it was beautiful and green. Fun to read the tombstones!

This was the first stop on our adventure to Alaska. My husband picked this place and we were pleasently suprised. Amazing at the love these owners have for their fur babies. I've told everyone about this place and have to show my pictures. It's a little of the beaten pathway but well worth the trip.

We were in North Alabama so we had to drop by and see what it was all about. We were impressed. As dog lovers ourselves, we see why this is important to so many people. We loved reading the epitaphs. It was out in the middle of no where, but well worth the trip. The GPS took us straight to... More

I heard about this place from my son and have been wanting to go here and timing was never right. Too late at night when coming home from earlier vacations or way out of the way so this year's vacation started here. It was still out of the way but so glad we went! To know that someone loves their... More

This is a great little stop if your traveling in North Alabama. There are some very unique tombstones and markers honoring some of the best coon dogs in the world. Always love to come by here to see what's new.

It is not easy to find, and it will take 15 minutes or more to get there from Highway 72. As you can imagine, it is filled with graves from coon dogs through the years. I've been there one time. After about 20 minutes, it'll be time to leave.

Stopped here on a road-trip across northern Alabama. Interesting stop- grave sites range from a pile of stones to fancy markers. It's nothing fancy or large, you can spend 5 minutes here or an hour. Definitely worth the stop if you like unique and historical sights! If you make it here, be sure to see the other sights around the... More

This is certainly a one-of-a-kind destination that is well worth the long, out of the way drive. For dog lovers of all breeds, but especially Coon Dogs. Hey, people have been coming since 1937!
