Easy to find -- good signage. Modest $1 donation to enter. Easy to find Wild Bill Hickok's grave, as well as others. A tour group came through when we were there and the tour guide was much too long-winded so we had to wait 20 minutes to take pictures. The walk is all uphill, so be prepared to exert some effort!

Cost of admission was only a dollar. The grounds are well maintained. The views were wonderful, but expect some serious inclines to walk.

The old man taking care of the visitor center and gift shop was so incredibly rude, I couldn't believe it! He should be fired! He was even rude to my little girl.

Beautiful view of Deadwood up there. Sounds weird to say, but its a beautiful cemetery. Only $1 to view. Kind of have to see wild bills grave when in Deadwood

Visiting a cemetery on your holidays is a bit weird but this is a must if you visit Deadwood - I love the film Calamity Jane. There were only three grave sites we visited, Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and Seth Bullock. There were other famous people but not anybody I had heard off (sorry!!). For your information, Wild Bill & Calamity are pretty much the first graves you come across but Seth Bullock's grave is a bit of a uphill walk away from all the other graves.
