Welcome to Lake View

Welcome to Lake View

With 285 breathtaking acres, Lake View Cemetery is the perfect place to spend the afternoon—or the afterlife. Stop by anytime. And stay as long as you like.

Pass through the stately double gates of Lake View Cemetery and you will see at once that it is a special place. Inviting paths wind over gently rolling hills, leading past numerous varieties of specimen trees, shrubs, and flowers. In Spring, this lovingly tended parkland blossoms into a pastel-colored wonderland. In the colder months, Lake View becomes a glistening winter wonderland, dotted with priceless art and timeless architecture. The grounds are a favorite destination for a drive, a stroll, special events, and live music.

Visitor Guidelines

We welcome you to explore our 285 breathtaking acres of natural vistas, horticultural gems, and historical landmarks. To ensure a pleasant visit for everyone, please follow our visitor guidelines.

Dogs must be leashed at all times for their safety and for other visitors. The human is responsible for picking up waste and disposing of it appropriately. Please be respectful and walk along the roads and not in the sections.

Speed limits of fifteen (15) miles per hour are posted and must be observed for the safety of all persons on Cemetery grounds. Bicycles, motorcycles, scooters, skateboards, etc. must be parked or walked while on the Cemetery grounds. Bike racks are located at each entrance.

Parking is available anywhere throughout the cemetery unless a no parking sign specifically prohibits it. Please keep all tires of your vehicle on the roadway when parking.

Since families grieve here, geocaching or playing augmented reality games are forbidden on Cemetery grounds.

We welcome those who wish to photograph our beautiful and historic cemetery. We know that many family members and friends of those interred, along with artistic photographers, enjoy taking pictures of our landscapes, memorials, geological forms, sculptures, architecture, wildlife and horticulture. However, Lake View Cemetery also has a duty to protect the privacy of the families of every person interred here. We ask that anyone with an interest in photographing specific memorials and/or gravesites seek the approval of the decedents’ families.

See our rules and regulations pertaining to decorating graves here.
For a complete set of rules and regulations, inquire at the office or contact us.
