  • Definitely a must see if you are visiting the Red Bay area. This isn't just a dog cemetery - these were certified Coon Dogs of particular breeds. If you happen to be there for the Annual Labor Day celebration, it is very entertaining and crowded - get there and enjoy live entertainment, and bring a lawn chair to enjoy local bar b q and local crafts.
  • It's definitely off the beaten path but really interesting
  • Safe. Well patrol for us women who feel like wrong turn
  • put it on the bucket list and plan to stay an hour or two bring some cool drinks and enjoy yourself ! one of life's not to forget experience's
  • Only champion coon dogs are buried here. The headstones are interesting to read. Nice quiet place but a bit hard to find. Just keep on going when you think you had to have passed it.
