Worth the trip if you into looking at tombstones. Also has a great overlook of the city that is worth the $1 admission

It's worth seeing the graves on not only famous characters like Calamity Jane, but also the views. The drive up there is steep and there are historical homes along the way.

We had planned to spend a short time in the cemetery, and ended up spending a few hours. Of course, the main attraction is Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane graves, but there is so much else to see. The Civil War fallen, the young children graves, the view of Deadwood. It was a wonderful experience and one that I... More

Beautiful cemetery, difficult to navigate, but beautiful and worth a tour of it. Wild Bill and Calamity Jane's graves are easy to find. You need to be able to navigate stairs and steep climbs. We took the Kevin Costner's tour to the cemetery. It was worth it as the guide gave us more information than was available in the flyer.

The history is interesting. Don't pass it up but pay close attention to the signs cause I got lost and had to turn around. Its an uphill climb in your car right thought a neighborhood so don't be so surprised when you have to go past several house. Don't just go to see wild bill and Calamity Jane look at... More

The cemetery is near the top of a mountain, but the view of the valley below is worth the hike. There is a lot of Deadwood history there and not just the famous figures such as Wild Bill or Calamity Jane. It shows what a diverse group of people settled and kept the town alive since 1876.

The Cemetery was pretty interesting... as was the discussions of the legendary Deadwood heros. We would have liked to have gone all the way to the top to see Bullock's grave too but that turned out to be a hike not included in the tour.

This is an interesting place. We saw the graves of 'Calamity Jane' and 'Wild Bill'. Nice view from there too.

Excellent place to spend an hour or so. You can visit the more popular graves of Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok, but also get great views of the Homestake Mine, the city of Deadwood and Mt. Roosevelt. So much history in one spot! The cemetery only costs $1 to get into- the best deal in Deadwood! You can get... More
