Hi, I’m Aaron, very nice to meet you and your best friend and can’t wait to walk your pup! I grew up in small town central IL taking care of multiple black labs. Almost 6 years ago, I took in a shelter dog named Addie and her and I have been walking and hiking and playing fetch ever since. I’m looking forward to walking your little (or big!) family member with the same love and care I share with my Addie. Thanks for reading my profile.

Castleton, Illinois is a very small town. There really isn't much for you to do besides walk through the neighboorhood. In order to shop or eat out with your pup, you'll have to drive a short distance to a nearby town. Fortunately, several towns near Castleton have plenty of dog-friendly things to do and see!
For example, just five miles away in Wyoming, you can find Rock Island Trail. Here, you will find several miles of trails that are open for hiking and biking. Wyoming is also home to the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad, a former train depot converted into a museum. Just remember to bring plenty of water and a leash so you can spend the afternoon exploring.
The small town of Toulon is about thirteen miles away from Castleton. It's home to a city park that is the perfect place to take your kids as well as your dog. You'll find a half-mile trail to explore, a playground, and many picnic areas. Your pup will have to be on a leash to play here.
Chillicothe is a thirty-mile drive, but Walnut Dog Park is worth every minute of the trip! This furrific off-leash park provides everything you need, including water and waste bags, so all you need to do is come and relax while your pup sniffs out some new friends.
Right in the heart of the Princeville community, about twenty miles from Castleton, you will find Troutman Park. This park is an important part of the community, and you will often find local families playing here. There is a playground here as well as ball fields. You can bring your dog with you to play as long as he is on a leash. There's plenty of space to walk and get some exercise here. The restrooms have running water, but you will need to bring your dog a water dish to drink from. Remember to always clean up after your pet.
While you are in Princeville, you should check out the Cutter's Grove Community Park. This is a slightly larger park with more open space and a short, paved walking trail. There are several ball diamonds as well as two playgrounds. Your dog is welcome to come and play as long as he is on a leash. There are water fountains for you to fill doggie dishes if you have one. Don't forget that you will need to bring doggie waste bags, as none are provided here. There is plenty to see and do here that you could easily spend an hour or two just hanging out!
Just a little bit further down the road, at about thirty miles away, you will find the small town of Princeton. Right in the center of Princeton is Kramer's Kitchen. They have several outdoor tables where you and your dog can grab a sub or grilled sandwich. The locals rave about the Cheese Big Boy, which is the most epic grilled cheese you will ever find! The ingredients are always fresh and the food is always delicious. Don't forget to try the homemade chips to go with your meal. Please keep your dog on a leash and never leave him unsupervised.
Just under twenty-two miles away is the town of Sheffield, which is home to a section of the nationwide Rails-to-Trails network called the Hennepin Canal Parkway. This trail is a whopper at 104 miles long! It stretches across several cities. You can take a week-long vacation just by walking from one city stop to the next. There are a few dog-friendly stops in the cities along the way, but you will want to have your own water with you. Your dog must stay on a leash, especially in the city limits. Make sure that you bring doggie waste bags with you and prepare for a barktastic adventure!
Baker Park is part of what the community of Kewanee considers Pleasure Drive. It is a two-mile area where you can play golf, walk the trail, or even ski. At the end of the trail, at the 19th hole, is a snack stand where you can grab a drink or a treat. Your dog isn't allowed inside, but you can order from the window and sit at the outdoor tables. Your dog must have a leash at all times. Please remember to clean up after your pet. Baker Park is about twenty-two miles from Castleton and is a great family spot, so bring the whole pack!
