I walked through Lake View Woods about 2 months ago, & I couldn't find the small cemetery that everyone mentions.
I found the larger cemetery that sits to the west of the woods (behind the church), and granted there was snow on the ground at the time, but I can't believe I would have walked right by it, and not noticed it (and I thought I had walked all over those woods).
Is there anyone who has been there, can tell me how to find it?
So we went last night to check it out. We went into Lakeview Woods. The Woods are part of the Dane County Park System so anyone can go in them. The woods are really erie but we didn't experience or see anything. I would like to also point out that the trails in the woods don't take you to a cemetary back in the woods. The woods have more than one entrance. The cemetary belongs to a church that is located right next to the Sanitarium. So you have the ability to enter the woods behind the sanitarium and follow the trails until you exit near the cemetary. If your just looking for the cemetary you don't actually need to go into the woods, we searched and there is not a cemetary back there. There are ruins/foundation for some old building near the center though.
There are 2 trails to enter the woods, one is directly behind the sanitarium right by the water tower, the other is over by the cemetery behind the church.

Thanks omw. When I was there, I thought I had searched every part of the woods, and couldn't find the cemetery. I found the one on the west side of the woods, but kept reading about a cemetery in the woods itself. I thought I just could't find it.
Now I know, I'm not anymore crazy than I already was.
