Excellent tour of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane's final resting spot given by local tour operator located by saloon #10 on main street. Very informative and well narrated. After the tour take in the Wild Bill Hickok shooting in the bar, very well done.

Our Deadwood bus tour stopped here. The guide was very knowledgeable. I recommend picking up the cemetery newspaper guide (at visitors center) which has a map and great descriptions of people who are buried in this cemetery.

Hubby wanted to stop here while we were in Deadwood. Unfortunately, it was raining and blustery-cold, so I'm sure the weather tainted this review! Calamity Jane and Wild Bill's graves are not far from the entrance, but do be prepared for some walking uphill! We...More

Don't miss a visit here! Lots of history and information above/beyond the 'celebrity' gravesites of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. The cemetery visit is super cheap (like, $2 per person) so it won't break the bank. Word of warning--a lot of uphill walking is involved,...More

Spent an hour walking about the tombstones of this fascinating old cemetery. Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are buried there and the stories and legends are all too real. Close by to the other sites of Deadwood, within an easy 5 minute walk.

The Mount Moriah Cemetery is toured on foot. Deadwood lies in a very steep valley. Visitors need to be prepared to do some pretty significant urban hiking to get to Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. Be prepared for VERY significant hiking at altitude to get...More

The entire cemetery is on a hillside. The walkways can be steep, but much of it is paved, so perhaps a wheelchair could be used.

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

We did not take it, but there is a tour bus that makes the trip there. However it is right in town, and there is plenty of free parking at the cemetery.
