From I-10 take the 603 North (= exit 13). Turn left on Texas Flat Road. You can also simply follow the signs to the McLeod State Park. Go past the Park office entrance - on the right hand side - and take the next road to your right. It is a dirt road, no pavement, do not travel after heavy rains. Follow this very picturesque, winding road for about 1/2 a mile and you will see the cemetery on your right.
