The infamous town of Martindale is 30 miles south of Austin, surrounded by old farmlands and great places to go camping. The old-timey feel of the city has been used by many film scouts over the years, reoccurring in scenes from different drama and horror movies. The movie never ends for Martindale's dogs, since the area is rich in natural and developed places to walk and spend some outdoor time with Fido. And while Martindale is too small for its own veterinary clinic, one can be found just 5 miles away in San Marcos.

The Allen Bates River Park is the largest park in the city, resting right on the shore of the San Marcos River. Grassy fields cover the park with scattered trees, dirt walkways, and access to the river for swimming and fishing. The park also includes a basketball court, swings, a pavilion, a playground, trash bins, and benches. Dogs do not have to be on a leash inside this park.

The Spencer Canoes & Shady Grove Campground is a well-maintained area with multiple camping spots, open space, and wooded trails. The grounds have picnic tables, a pavilion, and plenty of space to run around and set up your tents with your pooch. You'll have to come prepared with water and clean-up bags, but dogs do not have to be on a leash inside this park.

Martindale provides residents with a cozy and quiet place to live and play with Fido, so make this town the backdrop to your own buddy flick!
