Princeton, Indiana, situated in Gibson County, has been around since the 19th century and gives visitors that welcome, old-fashioned feel when they come through town. With a population density of 1,703 people per square mile, the city may seem like it should be crowded, but the five square miles that make up Princeton are strategically spread out to allow residents and tourists to enjoy the peace and quiet of their surroundings. This makes Princeton an excellent choice for you to bring your favorite furry friends and explore the quaint small-town atmosphere.
Princeton has two pet-friendly hotels: Fairfield Inn & Suites (with a small pet fee) and Princeton AirBnB with no pet fee. When you get there, you can enjoy a meal at one of their many restaurants' outside pavilions, or simply bring your meal, a blanket, and a book and relax at the spacious and pet-friendly Lafayette Park. At this park, you can enjoy hiking and backpacking trails, as well as bird-watching, which is what the park is known for, as long as your pets have you attached to their leash. With Princeton's two dedicated veterinary clinics, you and Fido can both rest assured that your vacation will be a safe and healthy one!
Just a short little window-down, tongue-waggin', 7.5-mile car ride away from Princeton is Indian Hills, a little neighborhood in Fort Branch. In this small town, you can find multiple walking trails where you and Fido are sure to lose track of time as you enjoy the beauty of Indiana in all of her seasons. Be sure to bring plenty of water for you both. You can window shop at one of Fort Branch's gift and specialty shops while you stroll down the old-fashioned streets. Stop at one of the highly-rated taverns (you'll have to leave Fido outside while you order) and try some down-home Indiana cooking!
Ready to do some more exploring? Owensville, a mere six miles (you know Fido would love to walk it!) from Princeton, brags that it is the perfect balance of rural, suburban and industrial life. You and your peppy pup will both be able to enjoy your visit regardless of the season as there is always something to do, like the annual Watermelon Festival where pets are allowed to attend if they are on leashes. Need to relax? Head over to Montgomery Park and let Fido enjoy exploring nature in the surrounding woods while you check out the beautiful foliage in its ever-changing color palette.
Up around the bend from Princeton, less than 10 miles away, lies Francisco, Indiana. Here, you can see a tiny town with an area of less than one square mile, yet it is home to Hopkins Family Park, where you will find beautiful trails extending beyond the small little town. Bring some charcoal and burgers for you and Fido to enjoy a peaceful barbecue, but make sure you clean up after each other! The panoramic vista stretches as far as the eye can see, and you will have plenty of land to frolic and play with your favorite canine friend before heading back to Princeton.
If you don't mind a little longer of a drive, about half an hour up the road, you will find the majestic neighborhood of Otter Creek Estates. Just up the road, you'll find Scales Lake Park, complete with a 66-acre lake. Hiking, picnicking, boating and fishing are all easily found here for a $2.00 fee per vehicle. Campers can relax with friends, family, and fur babies and enjoy a campfire in the peaceful setting of the surrounding woods. Explore the paths and trails (but be sure to keep Fido on a leash and have a doggie bag for clean up) before you head back home!
Part of Gibson County's multiple townships is Oakland City, where the Pakota River National Wildlife Refuge is located. Visitors from all over the country come to see some of the 380+ species of wildlife found in this refuge, and you and Fido can explore and see if you can find any of the special species that are native to this area of Indiana while you hike or canoe down the trails. The park is only open from sunrise to sunset, but it is available for visitation every day of the year. Pets must be on a leash and cleaned up after.
