Going South on US Hwy 165 from Alexandria, turn right at caution light in Woodworth, Castor Plunge Road; go two blocks on Castor Plunge Road and turn left at First Baptist Church, Bayou Clear Road. Go three miles and cemetery is on the left behind trailers. The cemetery is fenced, and at first glance appears to be maintained. However, this is not the case as there are many fallen markers and probably more than 50 unmarked graves or deep depressions that probably indicates lost graves. No attempt was made to record the large number of unmarked burials or depressions. Tombstone inscriptions recorded by Mary Parker Partain, 1991, and submitted by Jane Parker McManus

"Bush Land, B. C., orgnyzd [sic] 1876, laid June 3, 1917, membership 25, Rev. S. T. Young, Pastor. A. Fields, Deacon." This marker is located at the rear of cemetery, could have been the front of cemetery at one time, and appears to be a marker for the Church which no longer exists.
