Went just to see Wild Bill and Calamity Jane's burial spots. This place is huge. It was cheap to get in but you start off with a steep walk into the cemetery. This is an old cemetery, the most recent "died" date I found was in the 1950's. However, there is a great view of Deadwood if you stand under... More

The cemetery overlooks Deadwood from a high vantage point. I was told it is the #1 tourist attraction in Deadwood. The graves of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane are fenced off but easy to see. There is an American flag that flies 24/7. I took a bus up as it was too hot to hike. Our guide seemed knowledgeable but... More

Ride the bus or walk to this historic cemetery. Very nicely kept. A restful journey back in time. Take the time to read and discover some very old grave sights, not just those of the famous! . We even discovered the grave sight of an Iowan killed in the Civil War ( or the War of the North Aggression, depends... More

There is a bus tour you can take that you pick up in town. It was an hour and a half tour. Well worth it.

Very interesting history. Wish I had the time to walk around more. Was on the bus tour. Be sure they set the brake on the bus.

The walk thru the cemetery and reading the names on the headstones was very nice, especially if you watched the tv show Deadwood.

We had some time to kill, so we decided to drive up to the cemetery. Get a map with directions from one of the downtown merchants, or you'll likely get lost trying to find it. The gate attendant was not that friendly, but was happy to take our $2 each to enter. The cemetery has a very steep hill to... More

This cemetery can be visited on foot (steep in places) or driving through. Maps are available and recommended. If you are a student or fan of "the Old West" this is kinda cool. Won't take very long.
