The information page on the https://fortdrum.isportsman.net/Cemeteries.aspx, shows the following cemeteries located on the Fort Drum installation:

ALEXANDRIA ROAD CEMETERY

FULLER ROAD CEMETERY, also known as the Freeman or Bacon Cemetery

GATES CEMETERY, also known as the Plank Road or Sterlingville Cemetery

LAKE SCHOOL ROAD CEMETERY, also known as the Gormley Road Cemetery

WOODS MILL CEMETERY



The informational page also states that Memorial Day is the one time during the year that cemetery visits do not need to be coordinated with the installation's Range Control Branch and DPW-Cultural Resources. Visitors wishing to visit cemeteries on Fort Drum must obtain a pass at the Cerjan/1-781 Main Gate Visitor's Center or use their Fort Drum Recreation Pass. Occasionally, the cemeteries may be open on Labor Day from noon until 5 P.M. as well. If you wish to access these cemeteries during the rest of the year, please contact the Cultural Resources Section of the Environmental Division, Department of Public Works, and they will help you coordinate with the Range Control Branch.

In addition to the limited on-site visits, the page points out how difficult it may be to get to some of the locations, i.e., 4-wheel drive vehicles and extensive walking.
