Dog Areas in Matson

Matson, Missouri is a small town located about 45 minutes from St. Louis. The town was founded back in 1893 with the founding of the Matson Post Office. Many speculate that the town was named after Abraham Matson, who was one of the first people to settle in the area. Today, Matson serves as a bedroom community for nearby larger cities, including St. Louis.

Matson isn't the most dog-friendly place. There are no veterinarian clinics in town, but you shouldn't worry too much. There are a handful of clinics within 20 miles of Matson, so care for your furry family member isn't too far away. A couple of these clinics are even open 24 hours a day, and while you hope an emergency won't happen, it's always good to be prepared. There are also no dog parks or dog-friendly eateries in Matson, so you'll have to drive outside of town if you're looking to spend the day with your pup. Again, there are plenty of options within a short drive's distance.

A small town that's near some larger city amenities, Matson, MO is the perfect place for people looking for some peace and quiet. That's something we bet Fido wouldn't mind, either.

    #1 East Augusta

    Just ten minutes from Matson, you and Fido can find an access point to Katy Trail! This trail runs a massive 239 miles, so even if your dog loves really long walks, we bet they'll sleep well after exploring here. The trail runs through woods and is mostly made of crushed stone, so we suggest wearing comfortable shoes. Fido can join you on the trail, but they will need to stay on their leash for the duration of your hike. Remember to bring along plenty of water for both you and your dog, and make sure you clean up after your pup.

    #2 Defiance

    Just a few miles up the road from Matson, you and Fido can have a ball playing at Broemmelsiek Dog Park! You'll have as much fun exploring this off-leash bark park as you will saying its name. The park features a small pond where your dog can go make a splash and do the doggie paddle. If your dog doesn't like water, no problem! There's plenty of room for them to run around and play with their pawesome new pals. There's also a shaded pavilion for dog moms and dads. Water is provided, but bring along your own waste bags.

    #3 Carlton Glen Estates

    Quail Ridge Park Dog Park is about a 30-minute drive from Matson. This off-leash bark park isn't the largest, but there's still tons of room for Fido to get in their daily exercise with some new pup pals. Water is available during warmer months, but during winter, it's shut off so that the pipes don't freeze and burst. Remember to bring along some waste bags for quick and easy clean-up. You might want to call the park's hotline before making the drive here; after a heavy rain, the park is typically closed until some of the mud dries up. Better safe than sorry!

    #4 South Point

    Downtown Washington, which is just 16 miles from Matson, is home to South Point Dog Park. This pupular bark park hasn't been around for too long, but it's already making plenty of local dogs happy. There's plenty of shade for your dog to lounge around in when they aren't running around with their new fur-iends. There currently isn't a separate section for small dogs in the park, so if your small dog gets nervous around bigger dogs or your bigger dog doesn't do well around small pups, you might want to visit another dog park in the area. Bring water and waste bags.

    #5 Babler State Park

    Babler State Park is just 20 miles from Matson, and we guarantee you and your furry friend will enjoy exploring the park together! There are a few trails winding through the park, and they have varying levels of intensity, so you can pick one that works best for you and your dog. If you want to make a day of it, bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy in one of the shelters, or bring along a tent to camp out underneath the stars. Fido must be on their leash at all times while in the park, and you're respawnsible for cleaning up after your pet.
