What draws many is this is where Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane are buried. But you realize much more history as you walk the grounds. There are a number of graves from the civil war. The staff is helpful. You do have to pay...More

We went there to see the graves of Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, and Seth Bullock. Wild Bill and Jane’s markers were near each other, Bullock was high above the city and we weren’t able to see it. It’s a cool place to say you seen...More

I’m a fan of cemeteries but even if you’re not this is another of the must see attractions in Deadwood. It is a lovely, rolling, tightly compacted but not messy layout. If you can get your hands on one there is a map floating about...More

Surprised dogs were not allowed so we didn’t stay long. $2 admission. Visited some of the graves, but didn’t want to leave our dogs in the car. Beautiful views and interesting historical info.

This was the first place we visited when we stayed at Deadwood and it was a great first thing to see. We were staying at the 1899 Bed and Breakfast on Lincoln Ave. so we walked up (about 1.0 miles from the 1899 B&B). Bear...More

Established 1878 cemetery with historical significance. Well marked pathways. Allow yourself time to explore and respect the history found here.

We took pictures of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane's graves. The bus driver was very entertaining. We would recommend it.

Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane's graves are in this cemetery. The cemetery is located on a hill and has excellent views of Deadwood.

The cemetery was much larger than I had expected, with much more history than just the graves of Wild Bill and Jane. Saw some very interesting headstones shaped like trees. Fantastic view of Deadwood. I was disappointed that the people taking your money do not...More

My cousin brought her 2 big dogs, and they stayed in Deadwood and camped outside for 3 days, no incidents. You do have to be aware of local wide life at all times. Many places are pet friendly.

Hi, it is a bit of a climb, but it depends how fit your seniors are! We saw lots of older folks manage it if they took it slowly but on a hot day it might be a real challenge. There is a bus tour you can take which takes... More

I haven't been in winter, but I can tell you the road to get up to the cemetery was a small winding road so if there is snow or ice, it would probably be treacherous. I've just moved to MT from the South and it seems that... More
