Danville is a tiny community of about three dozen permanent residents. It is a place where rural living is the norm for many miles around it. No veterinarians work in Danville. People with pups needing veterinary care must drive to places like Hermann or Fulton.
The big attraction in Danville is the Graham Cave State Park. This Missouri state park has 386 acres of real estate set aside for conservation and recreation. This state park is a special one because of its value as an archaeological site. Here, you'll find evidence of inhabitants from 10,000 years ago. These ancient people used the cave as a dwelling. The state park features many exhibits which depict and explain where scientists discovered the remains and what the findings tell us about how these inhabitants lived.
Graham Cave also features a camping area. Both primitive and electric camping sites may be rented year-round. The state park recommends that campers bring no more than two dogs per campsite. However, multiple dogs are not prohibited. All furry family members must remain on no longer than a ten-foot leash while on state park property.
Graham Cave features five designated trails for you and your pup to explore. These trails range in length from a couple of tenths of a mile to 2.5 miles in length. The Loutre River Trail includes a 1.5-mile loop which takes you and your leashed pup near the riverbanks and across a breathtaking mixture of hardwood forest and brush. All trails are rated as no less than moderate in difficulty, but be sure to wear good walking shoes and bring plenty of water.
