You don't have to be a history buff to learn from this cemetery. Wild Bill Hickock was only 29 when he died. Calamity Jane was in her mid-50s. Her last words were she "wanted to be buried beside Bill Hickock. This cemetery shows many infant and children's deaths and those who were laid to rest in the Potters Field. Mount... More

I think we paid $8.00 each. The bus is the way to go,very little walking and the tour... More

It's a well kept cemetery. It was neat to see Wild Bill's and Calamity Jane's tomb but unfortunately they were enclosed around a gate so you really couldn't admire the statue on Bill's tomb. You do have to walk a big hill to see Seth Bullock's grave so be prepared to climb. I did walk around to see the other... More

We drove up to the cemetery which is high above the city. There is a small entrance fee, which goes for upkeep. This is a steep climb to get to Wild Bill & Calamity Jane’s gravesites. People still leave trinkets to honor them. I tried to climb the area in order to see other graves & a map of (former)... More

I was the only one in our party that went in to see the grave sites because it was a very hot day and two of the people in my family were not capable of making the walk. I'm not sure if they let the disabled drive their vehicle in, but it would have been nice. I like looking around... More

Walk real slow and read through history! It's all around ya. The big names that you read about as a kid, or saw movies about. It's all there. If your on your bike, watch that parking lot! It is cantored in the opposite way that it appears! We watched a lot of people lay their bikes down, thinking they were... More

To find the cemetery, it is a drive up a steep hill and a little bit of a walk uphill, but not far. It was interesting seeing the two graves. People left pinecones on Wild Bill's tomb, but visitors left an interesting assortment of things around Calamity Jane's tomb-scarves, small plastic horses, plastic arrow heads, feathers, etc.

A steep drive up to the cemetery where you pay to get in. Two large signs next to the wall mark where Wild Bill and Calamity Jane are buried.

We passed through Deadwood while traveling from the Black Hills to Yellowstone in early July 2016. We only had a little time, and having an interest in the Old West, I persuaded my wife and daughter to visit the cemetery. It was interesting to see Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane's final resting place. There is also a Civil War... More

We visited here on a Thursday afternoon we were kind of disappointed. Not only is it walking up hill. But you have to pay to walk uphill. We went because of the reviews of the great view of the town of Deadwood. We couldn't see Deadwood from the top of the hill.
