The cemetery is just off Highway 64 W. next to Lake Dardanelle on Mission Road on top of the hill on the left. The Mission RV Park has two entrances and the cemetery is encircled within this road in the woods. The outer edge of the cemetery faces 64 highway and the remainder of the cemetery faces the circled drive

Dwight Mission was located on the west bank of Illinois Bayou about four miles upstream from the Arkansas River. It is marked now by a sign on Highway 64 at a boat ramp that provides access to Lake Dardanelle. No buildings remain, but the cemetery location survives on the hill overlooking the site.

Several burials had already taken place by 1824 in the cemetery on the hill just west of the mission. (Leslie C. Stewart-Abernathy, Arkansas Archeological Survey)
