Very cool old cemetery, but lots of hills and lots of walking. It was very hot when we visited. Maybe the tour bus is a better way to see it, but a little disappointing for our crew

Wild Bill and Calamity Jane together at last (at least Jane is happy about this) Take the Original Boothill tour (owned by Kevin Costner) to this site, walking would be a well you know

Very interesting old cemetery that is perched on a hill. Wild Bill Hickok is buried here as well as Calamity Jane. Legend has it that he would turn over in his grave if he knew she was buried right next to him. He supposedly did not like her.

Was one of the tourists spots in deadwood that was family friendly but is kind of morbid to visit a cemetery of people that you don't know. It gets a check mark in my book for completion.

I don't know about you but when I go to an old cemetery I like to see old tombstones. In this case the majority of headstones we saw were brand new. There were some old ones but the notables, wild Bill Hickok for instance were new memorials. A bit disappointing, but the views were nice. There is a near by... More

We visited via a tour so we were given information about Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, and Potato Creek Johnny while viewing the monuments in the cemetery. Visiting a piece of history!

We took a tour with Original Deadwood Tours. It was extremely entertaining and informative. Would definitely do it again.

Tough to get to through the construction of roads but it was neat to visit once we got there. However, unless you are a real hiker and fit even in higher elevations, the hike of the whole cemetery is too much. The initial climb to see Hillock, Calamity, and the two others right at the beginning might be enough for... More

Do not go here! I went with a couple dogs in the car. No pets allowed on the cemetery. I can respect that. So I left my dogs in the car with the doors locked and the air conditioner running. It was 7:30 in the morning. I was the first one there that morning. I was up on the cemetery... More
