First off, drive to the cemetery first. We have visited the cemetery multiple times on our multiple trips and we always drove up the hill. We heard that some people walk the hill and are then too tired later in the day. We've always come on the "off season" so we never had to pay the fee. Worth seeing Wild... More

Visited on a freezing, snowy Winters Day which you gotta expect in Jan !! I thought it added to the experience but we soon worked out why apart from Deer tracks no one else had visited that day !! The place was packed with them but they skittered off as we approached. Had no idea where Wild Bill was interred... More

Glad that we decided to drive, and not walk from our hotel.. Weather was cold, and the roads were icy. Cemetery is at top of hill. It was very interesting to see the gravesites of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. The steps leading to the graves were mounds of ice. Thankfully, there was a railing. Instead of trying to navigate...

I have been to Mount Moriah several times through the years and always walk away a little bewildered. I not really sure what I expect but I just never feel like it was time well spent. What you do get is plenty of exercise since it is built on the side of a hill. If this will be your first... More

WE WALKED up to the cemetery...and back down. I would not do that again! Very quiet with a great view when you reach the top.

We were staying the night in Deadwood and wanted to see the grave site of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. You have to drive up a steep hill and there is a parking lot at the top. At the ticket booth you get a map. I believe admission was only $2 per person. Once you enter the cemetery, it's just... More

If you are an old west history buff you should like this place. Some colorful characters from the gold rush days are up there. Well maintained and the whole setting is fitting for Deadwood. It is a little strange to see tour buses in the cemetery as well as being charged to enter. A charge to enter a cemetery when... More
