Good tent pitch and hook up in the National Park. Convenient for lodge, visitor centre and amphitheatre. Quiet too. You can get an early start and awake to meadowlarks and bluebirds. No campfire sadly. Boys loved it. Does what it says on the tin. Thank you.

The view is excellent, they had a very nice evening program put on by the rangers, it is a perfect location for exploring the park and the bathrooms were clean. The biggest negative is that we stayed in a camper and would have loved a water hook-up, but none of their campsites had them.

Cedar Pass is a very nice campground. They have electrical and non-electrical sites. We stayed in one without electricity. Sites are wide spots in the road, but the area is wide enough you're not hanging out in the road. All sites have covered picnic tables and water is centrally located. We did not use the bathroom or shower facilities since... More

We camped one night in these campgrounds. Comfortable and clean. Very convenient for visiting the park. And we really enjoyed the scenery. We had dinner in the Cedar Pass Lodge. Good service. Food OK.

Badlands National Park is beautiful. The campgroup is unique in that you simply pull off to the side of the roadway; there are no "sites" persay. We arrived late at night, so it was nice to just pull up and plug our T@B camper in but this is definitely more of a one night stay kind of place. Campfires are... More

This is a beautiful spot, easily accessed but far enough from the highway that you won't hear it. My family and I had a wonderful time visiting Badlands and camping out here. The campground has a good layout and the park service folks and administrators were pleasant and helpful. There were only two real drawbacks: 1. There was no clearly... More

Badlands National Park itself was spectacular, and the view from the campground was lovely. But there was no place clearly marked for washing dishes, meaning that I and others ended up using the bathroom sink, which nobody, of course, appreciates. Most of the tent sites are on the inner ring which means they're less private. Also, we were at site... More

Decent campground. No dishwashing stations. The only soap dispenser in the ladies bathroom was broken (broken, not empty) while I was there and there were no hosts to take care of it. Not much privacy, but that shouldn't be a surprise. I really enjoyed listening to the meadowlarks and watching the sunset.

My husband and camped at Cedar Pass in May, 2014. The win , the desolation was excellent, but the facilities were awful. In the shower house, there is not so much as a HOOK, upon which to hang ones towel, and shower supplies. No hook for your clothing. Not even a waste basket. Very strange. And disrespectful. The National Park... More

We only stayed one night but it was great! The campground host new our names when we pulled in. They keep the campgrounds spotless. We highly recommend staying here. Make sure you take the loop road through the badlands.
