Located on Hervey Sunside Rd, just west of the old hamlet of Sunside in the Town of Durham. The cemetery is located on the old Elijah Utter Farm  (Elijah married an Olmsted daughter) about 300 yards in from the road. It is surrounded by a stone wall and numerous trees have taken hold within its walls. A deep leaf litter covers the cemetery floor.
