Traveling north from the Osborne Visitor Center, the cemetery is approx. 100 feet north of the intersection of Hwy 13 & Empire Rd, and a few yards south of Highway 13. It may not be marked with a sign. The area is wooded and overgrown, so the cemetery may not be visible from the highway. There are at least 3 existing gravestones as of August 2015.
