Probe Rod

where is my septic tank lid from the cleanout?

need to find tank lid clean out is 12 ft, off house

You need a probing rod, any steel rod about 3/8 diameter to poke into the ground until you hit the tank. Normally it is within a few feet from the cleanout.
If you have field lines in the grass area, sometimes you can tell by the greener grass lines where the end of the tank is located.
Probe into the dirt until you find concrete and go left to right then front to back, you will then have an idea of the tank layout and can dig up the lid on either end.
Some tanks are different, and may only have one lid. So you could be digging awhile.
