We drove up to Deadwood on a whim. So interesting to see the cemetery where so many famous people are buried! I would drive here rather than walk from downtown as it is WAY up a steep hill. It's cool to walk around and see Calamity Jane, Seth Bullock and Wild Bill Hickok - to name a few. We enjoyed... More

Wild Bill, Bullcvok and Jane, I traveled 3000 miles to see them. Before you go watch the HBO series Deadwood, these guys are like your friends. Bullock grave could use some upkeep.

A must see while in Deadwood. Being there and seeing Wild Bill and Calamity Jane burial sites adds even more to the Deadwood legend. You can relive the way it was in the wild west.

How much is that worth to you? Wild Bill has quite a nice headstone. Calamity Jane is just a flat tablet. My review is asking if this place is popular with tourists. It depends on if you care about these two and if seeing grave markers are worth $3 a person. There was a crowd around the fence next to... More

We drove up the hill and parked, paid the entrance fee and got a map of the cemetery. It's not an easy hike but it's worth the time to see Wild Bill's grave with Calamity Jane nearby. I thought it was touching, with a touch of western humor, that packs of playing cards and cigarettes were placed on the stones... More

A beautiful, well kept cemetery. Amazing to stand close to Calamity Jane and Wild Bill's graves and learn more of their story. The walk is worth it for the views too, you can see most of Deadwood from the graveyard although not everyone will manage the walk as it's quite a steep climb. Well worth the visit and if walking...

It was closed but you could proceed at your own risk. While Will Bill and Clamity Jane are up the road, the sheriff's grave is a hike. Especially in the winter.

Was truly a wonderful and surreal experience. There's so much of our American history in this part of the country. Everybody should make a point to visit!
