Lake Mound Cemetery is located north of Zion at the intersection of Hwy 137 [Elijah Rd] and 29th St. The cemetery lies on the southeast side of the intersection. The cemetery is surrounded with black iron fencing. It is a well maintained cemetery. There is no parking or drive into the cemetery. I parked across the street in the Aldi's parking lot.
