Campo Santo de San Jose, aka, "New Anton Chico Cemetery" is on the SW edge of the town of Anton Chico, approximately 1/4 of a mile SW of the San Jose Catholic Church. There are approximately 1,000 graves, with 100-200 of them unidentifiable.

This cemetery is sometimes confused with San Jose Cemetery in Santa Rosa, even though "Saint Joseph's Cemetery" is the name on the gates of the cemetery in Santa Rosa.

There is also some confusion with the old Campo Santo de San Jose, aka "Old Anton Chico Cemetery" that is only a few hundred feet away, to the WSW. Using the satellite view, go to the southern edge of the "new" cemetery (near the bottom); follow the arroyo to the west (there is an unimproved road somewhat visible); there is a defined area where the trees were cleared and the plot is clearly flat as compared to the surroundings; the arroyo bounds the plot on the north side. The smaller cemetery up the arroyo is the earliest Campo Santo de San Jose in Anton Chico.
