Markleville, Indiana is a quiet community located in Adams Township. With a population of just over 500, it comes as no surprise that this quaint locale isn't exactly packed with dog-friendly amenities like off-leash parks and restaurants. Don't fret, though -- you and your precious pooch are still sure to find something to do nearby! If your furry friend requires vet care, we've got some bad news: the only vet clinics in town serve horses. But there's some good news! You can find plenty of options for both emergency and specialty care in nearby Pendleton.
Visiting in the fall? If you and your pooch aren't afraid of things that go bump in the night, check out Trails of Terror. While this haunted house attraction is most pawpular around Halloween, it also offers off-season tours which are dog-friendly. You will need to call ahead to make reservations. Be aware that this is an intense tour which isn't suitable for easily frightened dogs. Children under ten are not allowed.
For something more family-friendly, head on over to the community park. The walking trail which circles the park is dog-friendly, and the playground is open to all kids (except the furry ones, un-fur-tunately). There are water fountains as well.
You and Fido will fall head over tail for Markleville!
While you and your pup are adventuring in Anderson, you're bound to get hungry, so when the bellies start growling, paw over to Greek's Pizzeria. This local pizza chain is off the chain! Here, you can get your favorite pie loaded down with your favorite toppings. Your leashed dog can join you at any of the outside tables, or you could always get your pizza to-go and find a park to have a picnic. This dog-friendly spot is located on the outskirts of Anderson, much closer to Markleville, which makes it the pawfect pit stop on the way back home!
