This shady cemetery is in good shape. The grounds appear to be maintained on a regular basis. The original cemetery is fairly full of burials. New burial sections have been opened in the back or west area of the cemetery.

There is an old central gated entrance to this cemetery with Shady Oak Lake Cemetery - Est. 1875 over the gate. This cemetery is located north of the intersection of Bren Road and Shady Oak Road. The northern edge of this cemetery borders Lone Lake P k.

A plaque with a note / letter on the cemetery grounds stated that this cemetery was started as a place for the poor immigrants from the city of Hopkins to be buried.

It should be noted that this cemetery has numerous burial monuments written in the Czech language.

This cemeteries burial monuments were transcribed in July 2001.
