"The cemetery lies on a hill in the community of San Pasqual, just off State Highway 78. There were about 15 unreadable markers. Take the 78 into San Pasqual, and turn left onto a road immediately before crossing the bridge over Santa  Ysabel Creek. If you cross the bridge, you've missed it. The cemetery is easily visible from the highway, and is often referred to by the locals as "Cemetery Hill"."

This cemetery is one of the earliest burial sites for pioneers in the area. There are possibly some buried here from the San Pasqual battle as well.

Personal Experience: This place is easy to miss. When you're heading east on San Pasqual Rd., you will pass the Safari Park, the San Pasqual Battlefield and right when you're heading to the bend that leads you to Ramona, that is where it is.  Look to your left and read the directions above.

Please come here with respect, as many of the people buried here still have family members that regularly visit.  There are still new people being laid to rest

here too.

    Creepy! I came with a friend otherwise I’d be too scared to be here alone. We went in the afternoon. I can’t imagine how scary it would be at night. I wasn’t sure where to park so I parked right in front of the gate. There is an abandoned lot next to the cemetery. I don’t know if that’s private property or a parking lot.

    It’s a tricky climb to the top of the hill. Use the hand railing as the ground is uneven. Don’t wear high heel shoes! There is a giant bulletin board with random clippings in the middle of the cemetery. The grave markers from the 1800’s were interesting. Beautiful views from the top of the hill.

    The cemetery is on your left hand side, right before the white bridge.

    Since you disabled the comment box on the “San Pasqual Indian Cemetery” page I am commenting here. Those pictures need to be taken down as our family is trying to REST IN PEACE. It is very disrespectful when OUTSIDERS think they can come in and take pictures to share. If someone wishes to see those peoples’ resting area than they should visit them respectfully. Our loved ones resting place is not a TOURIST ATTRACTION and it pictures of Kumeyaay Indian Burial Sites should not be posted online. You have removed the photos from the Santa Ysabel Indian Cemetery and I feel like you should do the same with these pictures of the San Pasqual Indian Cemetery. It is wrong. There is a lot of trauma surrounding the deaths of these people and they should not be exploited like this. Please hear me out and consider taking the photos down.

    All of the Indian Cemetery pictures and entries should be removed. This is extremely disrespectful given the history of that has went on. Our ancestors are trying to rest and those of us who want to visit them should be able to visit them peacefully. Pages like these causes more harm them good, these cemeteries are NOT a tourist attraction. To think otherwise isn’t just disrespectful but also say a lot about who you are as a person.
