We visited the Cemetery on our own without the tour and found it to be very well maintained and easy to negotiate. The view of the city from the lookout point is outstanding and the gravestones are obviously mostly new. There was a tour at Wild Bill and Calamity Jane's graves so we had to sit and wait to get...

Can tell they are trying to clean the cemetery up a bit. Would be nice to have signage pointing to Seth Bullock's grave on top of the hill. Almost gave up a couple times wondering if we were going the right way.

We go to Deadwood often for a lot of reasons, but most to see our daughter. This last trip we drove up all the steep hills and visited the old cemetery. It is well worth the trip up the hill as it is in a wonderful setting and a good view of Deadwood. It will take you about a half... More

Several notable persons are buried in this cemetery. Even the graves of those not so well known give you an insight as to what the mixture of the nationalities of those who came to settle Deadwood. It is worth your time(and money) to take it with a local tour company.

Very beautiful. Only cost is a dollar per adult and fifty cents per child. Lots of interesting people buried here. If you want to see Seth Bullocks grave, where good walking shoes as it is at the top of the mountain by itself. Still worth it.

We entered the cemetery as a part of a tour. Being very interested in the old west it was interesting to hear about Calamity Jane and Wild Bill. There was a lot more to the cemetery than those two graves. The guide explained how the cemetery was setup, when it moved up the hill to the current location and about... More

Year after year we go and I always find something new there to appreciate. I love the walk to the cemetery and looking at the history

We live in the neighborhood just below Mount Moriah, and I visit the cemetery pretty frequently in the spring and autumn. Summertime gets a little crazy with tourists flocking to the graves of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, and the winter brings deep snow that can stick around for weeks under the shade of the tall ponderosas that grow...

We took a history tour of main street and the cemetery via a local's bus tour, I believe his name is Ike-- tour was very nice and just $10 per person. The cemetery is nice, well kept, and serves as the resting place for some very colorful characters from the "Old West." Look for Ike's bus, he brings the Mount... More

Historic tombstones along a paved walking path, hilly but take it slow & you see many headstones. A map handout helps guide your easy stroll.
