Hard to rate a cemetery 5 stars. It won't wow you and you really shouldn't be surprised by what you see/find. Go for the history of some famous people. Great view of Deadwood as this cemetery is up on the hill. Parts of the walk...More

Be prepared to do a lot of walking and most up hill. It is a very pretty spot with good views looking over the town. The visitor center was closed when we arrived so we missed out on the video. I don't remember who it...More

We visit the cemetery several times a year. It’s a place to pay our respects to those buried there, as well as the events that led to their final resting place.

Don’t expect to go up there during the winter months, as the town does not maintain side streets well. We found this out the hard way after getting stuck on the very steep hill leading up the cemetery. It is NOT accessible when it’s snowing...More

The cemetery is beautifully kept , the view is breathtaking. Be prepared for a very steep hill to walk up. The history there is outstanding.

We were fans of the TV series Deadwood, so this cemetery was of particular interest to us. We decided to take a tour to get our bearings of the town, so that provided us with a great overview of the cemetery. We later drove up...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.
