A good place for Western History buffs, others would be confused on seeing random graves. The site doesn't take long to visit and the hike up isn't bad at all from the parking lot right below.

Extremely historic, the scenery is beautiful. We walked to the back and noticed a sign giving directions to Seth Bullock's grave. Accessible from the cemetery but not within the cemetery. A bit of a hike uphill but worth the walk. We couldn't see the Friendship Tower he had built in memory of Teddy Roosevelt. Best take a bottle of water... More

Alright but not any great shakes. A lot of work climbing stairs for a look at a grave. During the regular season it looks like a fee attached, I wouldn't mind a free will donation but I wouldn't pay to visit.

This is a must visit while visiting this area to see the grave of Wild Bill Hickock. The whole town is a history lesson.

Very easy to navigate as they provide a map of the cemetery. Small fee to enter, but worth it. FYI they have bathrooms and a gift shop.

Stop by here for a quick visit to see Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane's grave sight. I am sure there are other really cool grave stones in the cemetary but we went for these two. It is worth the stop.

I am going to preface this by saying you should go there, it is worth it, but the walking is terrible. The cemetary is literally on the side of a mountainous hill and the walking paths are not all level or easy to maneuver. If you have someone in your travel party who is not conditioned for this type of... More

We came to deadwood in a class a motorhome, so we parked it in one of the parking lots downtown, and walked up to the cemetery. It was actually a really interesting walk and gave us a chance to get to know deadwood on a different level. It's uphill, so I wouldn't recommend it for those that find it difficult... More
