The best way to reach this cemetery is to go to Passumpsic Village (3mi south of St Johnsbury on US Rte 5); look for a westward turn up County Hill Rd; follow it to a 4-corners at the foot of a steep "School House Hill"; go straight until you see a left turn just over a small cement bridge; not too far up the hill is a farm with metal gate on your right; unless you have a vehicle with high clearance you must park here and walk uphill 150 yards to an intersection of discontinued roads, walk past the metal gate on your right, go right past the camp, and follow a path downhill to the brook, then go straight up a steep bank to the cemetery on a barely visable path.
The cemetery is overgrown with ferns, etc.; but, the selectmen clear fallen trees, etc. whenever they get reports.
Just to right of the camp's gate, you can still see signs of a discontinued road (drivable in 1970) that went downhill, then up to a school, then down to the Water Endric Road and continued across to what is now called Winn High Drive.
